    Install Oracle client on Windows 2008 sever

      I have been trying to install Oracle client (32 bit) on Windows 2008 sever.
      However during installation it is giving one error multiple times.
      The error is
      "Unable to create an item in Windows Start Menu or Desktop"

      On checking the installation log file the following is seen -

      NFO: Calling Action ntw32FoldersActions10. ntCreateItem
      selectedNodes = null
      groupName = Oracle - OraClient10g_home2\Oracle Installation Products
      itemName = Universal Installer
      exeName = c:\oracle\product\10.2.0\client_2\oui\bin\setup.exe
      paramName = null
      workingDir = c:\oracle\product\10.2.0\client_2\oui
      iconFileName = null
      icon = 0
      cmdType = null
      multiparamName = null
      runAsAdmin = null

      INFO: Exception thrown from action: ntCreateItem
      Exception Name: AddItemException
      Exception String: Unable to create an item in Windows Start Menu or Desktop
      Exception Severity: 0

      Has someone encountered such a issue / have a fix for this issue?
