Wish I could go to the new version, but we cannot because of some limitations in our infrastructure which need upgrades before the new version can be used.
I deleted my classpath entirely. Should I get rid of my JAVA_HOME too?
I moved all my java versions to be in a directory without a ) in it.
I downloaded java 1.6.23 and installed.
Still no luck.
This is a bizarre error. I must have a paren someplace, but heck if I can find it. Got any other ideas on where to look?
Various parts of the Oracle Middleware platform choke when the PATH or install directories contain a ")" character (it messes up parenthesis matching in scripts). Unfortunately, on 64-bit Windows, Microsoft has decided to have a "Program Files (x86)" directory - yech, both spaces and parenthesis in a directory name!
I've worked around this on my installation by using the little-known MKLINK command to create a junction point for the offending directory like this:
And then replacing all occurrences in the PATH of "c:\program files (x86)" with "c:\pf86" - gets rid of the offending parenthesis and makes my path shorter as well.
mklink /J c:\pf86 "c:\program files (x86)"
I deinstalled and reinstalled into C:\Oracle\JDev11.1.3 with no luck.
John, I removed all references to (x86) from my path and i removed my classpath env var. Still no luck.
Then, I realized that the "deinstall" leaves everything in your User/user/appdata/roaming/..... directories and there were still references to the x86 dirs there. Ugh. Something for Oracle to fix if you ask me.
So, I deinstalled, and then deleted all the appdata dirs; then reinstalled.
Anyway, I can get WL to start now so that's a step forward. Now I have to figure out why it's telling my that my ADF jars aren't on the project classpath.
Thanks for your help.
