error while installing htmldb from the companion cd (10R1)

Hello team,
i needed to install apex on an existing 10gR1 database running on Windows Server 2003 SR2, so i started off by installing the companion cd stuff coming with that release.
Oddly enough, i successfully installed the http server but the htmldb installation keeps failing.
Looking at the log, the first unusual condition i spot, as i've done this operation many times over the years, is in the command generated by the installation program:

'C:\oracle\product\10.1.0\cd\jdk\jre\bin/java.exe -classpath C:\oracle\product\10.1.0\cd\marvel\jlib\htmlDBConfigClasses.jar;C:\oracle\product\10.1.0\cd\jdbc\lib\classes12.jar;C:\oracle\product\10.1.0\cd\jdk\jre\lib\rt.jar;C:\oracle\product\10.1.0\cd\jlib\ojmisc.jar;C:\oracle\product\10.1.0\cd\oui\jlib\OraInstaller.jar; htmlDBConfig C:\oracle\product\10.1.0\cd lrserver01 1521 lanza SYSAUX Valore protetto. Registrazione non necessaria Valore protetto. Registrazione non necessaria en,it HTMLDB C:\oracle\product\10.1.0\cd\marvel'

Avvio dell'output dal processo generato dinamicamente:
---------------------------------- CreateProcess: env error=2

if i execute the command above from the command line an additional message is returned:

"version mismatch!"

However i am not clear as to what kind of version it refers to... java or what else?

I checked another installation on a similar machine and i could not see any significant difference between the two besides a different Windows 2003 service pack.

Also, in the log file all the subsequent attempts to connect to the database fail with SP2-0640 and the cause seems to be ORA-12545.

Any clues?

Thank you,

    A few hours later i found out that this problem was a known bug (3602534).
    I hadn't found the relevant article before because the quick search of this forum by default returns only results within the last 90 days so i had to repeat the search by specifying a different timeframe.

    The bug fix unfortunately is also pointed to by outdated links in various replies.
    One example of such dead links is
    The address of the relocated FAQ is now:

    I found a first example of the problem in this thread:

    There is also a good reply from Denes here:
