    Can't uninstall Oracle Client 11g on Win7/64 (all read and tried)

    873070
      First: I already know the official tutorial for removing Oracle 11g and have read several existing forum entries on this topic.

      1. When I try to deinstall with OUI (mark "OraClient11g_home1" only, no expanded subnodes), it tells me to run "deinstall" in the deinstall subfolder of the client directory.

      2. When I run deinstall (Console, in Admin mode) it runs, but tells me:

      ERROR: Cannot find the file bin\ONSCLIENT.dll in the ORACLE_HOME D:\...\11.2.0\client_2. You must download the standalone version of the deinstall tool from OTN to deconfigure/deinstall this Oracle Home.
      cannot remove directory for C:\Users\[me]\AppData\Local\Temp\OraDeinstall_12-18-45: Permission denied at D:\app\[me]\product\11.2.0\client_2\deinstall\bootstr
      ap.pl line 179
      1 file(s) copied.
      1 file(s) copied.
      The system cannot find the path specified.
      1 dir(s) moved.


      The ONSCLIENT.dll is in fact not there, neither in the client bin directory, nor in the deinstall bin directory. The temporary folder exists, and I have no idea why it should not be allowed to be deleted.

      I could not find any additional tool, except one explicitly for Windows 32bit.

      This one should be a 64 bit client, I have another client in 32bit (client_1). I have currently some kind of version chaos, some applications need 32bit, so I want to get rid of the 64bit stuff for now.

          Have you tried to download the deinstall utility from technet.oracle.com and tried using it?

            Where can I get that deinstall utility? I didn't find any download for it yet. There's none in the deinstall guide.

              You can find the deinstall utility at the below link

                Does this utility work for windows server 2008 R2?

                    Doesnt seem to be working for me! It gets stuck on:

                    "Removing Windows and .NET products configuration START"

                    On the last attempt it sat there for over an hour. When I cancel out of the batch process I got the following errors:
