Not sure about the messages you are seeing, but the uninstall process is documented
Thanks Srini, but the instructions have two options:
1. Use the Control Panel, select "Oracle 11g..." and uninstall from there.
This is of course the first thing I tried, but as I said, there is no entry for Oracle 11g in my "Programs and Features" applet.
2. Download the install package and run OracleXE.exe with the remove iss file.
Firstly, there is no OracleXE.exe in the package I downloaded, just setup.exe;
Secondly, setup.exe ignores the iss parameter and tells me that OracleXE is already installed (setup.log contains ResultCode=-3) so it can't be installed.
Is there somewhere else to get an OracleXE.exe that will work for 11g? Or are these the instructions for 10g and haven't been updated yet?
Am I unusual in not having a Control Panel entry?
(and I understand this is a beta - that's partly why I'd like to uninstall it - I'll go back to 10g and not be so impatient :))
I have the beta installed on a Win XP 32 Pro SP3 and I can confirm the problem concerning the events. Anyway, my instance runs without further issues as well.
Also, I do have an entry in my software list in control panel.
If can also confirm that there is no OracleXE.exe. But on my XP, the uninstall worked issuing the following command
So either something went wrong during your install, so you didn't get the entry in the software list and some information for uninstall got missing as well, or this is an issue with Win 7 Home Premium. Could you post information on Service Pack and edition (32/64)?
