Oracle 18c XE - Win10 Pro - installation hangs

AAndrei
AAndrei Member Posts: 2 Red Ribbon

Hello,

I am trying to install Oracle 18c XE on Win10 Pro with admin privileges and at about 90-95% progress, it just hangs ("Creating Oracle XE Database")... even when i cancel the operation, after i confirm that i want to cancel it, it doesn't do anything, so the only way to interrupt it is by ending the task. Afterwards, if i try to run the installer again, it says that Oracle is already installed, so i have to uninstall it manually (delete Oracle Win registers, Oracle home directory, Windows user/groups).

I've checked the previous conversations regarding this issue, applied the possible solutions (NetBIOS enabled) and still i get the same result.

Can you please advice what should i try to solve/get around this problem?

Please let me know if i need to attach any logs.

All the best,

Andrei

    From what you say, the software installation runs OK (the product) is installed but the DB creation is somehow hanging.

    You can try installing again and include the database alert log, it may show any serious error that may occur, or review if any trace file is generated.

    Hi,

    Thanks for your interest.

    I've checked the database alert logs and ORA-00445 pops-up:

    There are support notes on this error:

    • Master Note: Troubleshooting Oracle Background Processes (Doc ID 1509616.1)
    • Troubleshooting Guide (TSG) - Ksvcreate: Process(xxxx) Creation Failed / ORA-00445: Background Process "xxxx" Did Not Start After n Seconds (Doc ID 1379200.1)

    If you are technically inclined, troubleshoot by setting trace 10281 via custom pfile and do a manual db start.

    If you are logically inclined, change from Windows to Linux. Exchange dirty and convoluted complexity for the elegance of simplicity.

    Please disable anti-virus and try again.

    I think you said you have seen this list of common issues, but just to be sure:

    1) Is ORACLE_HOME or TNS_ADMIN set in the environment? Go to a command prompt, type "set". You will need to temporarily unset any such environment variables.

    2) Are you using Windows 10 Home Edition? It is not supported and the installer is not properly checking for it in the Prerequisite check.

    3) Are you using Server 2019? Same issue.

    4) On your network adapter that you are using, check (enable) "Client for Microsoft Networks" and "File and Printer Sharing for Microsoft Networks".

    5) Check to make sure Netbios is enabled on your network connection:

    See this link for more info:

    http://ecross.mvps.org/howto/enable-netbios-over-tcp-ip-with-windows.htm

    6) In some cases, antivirus has interfered with an installation.  Try installing without AV.

    7) Try creating a local user and adding to local administrator group and then log in and install as that user.

    Hi all

    I tried to install express 18c on Win 10 HOME and Win10 PRO and it was hanging at about 90-95% progress also.

    The way I did to bypass this issue, working as well as for Win 10 Home as for Pro : all is about administrator account !

    What I did :

         log to win 10 using the usual account and run cmd.exe (as administrator) and issue : net user administrator /active:yes

         log to win 10 with the real administrator account and run the 18xe setup.exe (no need to run as administrator). Then the install achieved well. Give full access to folder (and all sub-folders and sub-files)18xe was installed in to the win 10 usual account

        log to win 10 using the usual account and run cmd.exe (as administrator) and issue : net user administrator /active:no

    Then I was able to use the 18xe from my usual account ...

    I hope this will help someones

    O/S-Error: (OS 1387) A member could not be added to or removed from the local group because the member does not exist.


    [FATAL] Failed to add ME\Me install user to %2% group.

  • Thank you, and sorry you hit this.

    Could you please zip up and email to me the logs located in the following directories:

    1) [youroraclehome]/cfgtoollogs/oui

    2) C:\Program Files\Oracle\Inventory

    Please email them to me at christian dot shay at oracle dot com

    Thanks!
