Hi. First time forum user so bear with me.

I'm not sure if this is the correct forum for this but the assistance of anyone who may be able to shed some light on the problem whould be greatly appreciated. I am having a problem when attempting to install the Companion CD for HTMLDB 1.6 and HTTP Server, details given below:

The following Oracle components have been successfully installed
Oracle 10gR2 Database.
Oracle 10gR2 Database patch 10.2.03.
Critical patch up date (security).

The following Oracle component failed to install.
Companion CD for HTMLDB 1.6 and HTTP server

Scenario leading up to failure
Extracted companion CD installation files to D:\oracle\utilities\Oracle_10_2_0_Companion
Executed D:\oracle\utilities\Oracle_10_2_0_Companion\companion\setup.exe.

The following error message is displayed in a "JAVA VIRTUAL MACHINE LAUNCHER" dialog box
"Could not find the main event class. Program will exit."

I have been attmepting to resolve this problem for over a week and have already checked the following with no resolution to the problem:

Cause. This issue may have to do with two issues (and may occur more on Windows):-

1. Within the ORACLE_HOME directory full pathname there is a space.

2. The directory from where the software / patch is being installed has a space within the directory full
pathname (where the file for the installation by default is named products.jar or products.xml).

Solution. To implement the solution, please execute the following steps:-

1. Rename the full pathname directory NOT to contain a space.

2. Launch again the OUI... and verify if the problem occurs.

Any further guidance would be greatly appreciated.
