During Oracle 11g R2 prerequisite checks, I got Environment variable: "PATH" failure. It seems to me the length of the environment variable exceeds the recommended length.
Any help will be appreciated.
Hi MJ (hope not Michael Jackson )
Generally we see this error, when PATH variable reaches it’s character limit of 1023.
This issue can be resolved by editing PATH variable and removing unwanted characters/paths ( do not remove any system related paths which contain %SYSTEMROOT% etc.. )
Navigation: My Computer –> right click –> properties –> Advanced –> Environment Variables –> Select PATH in system Variables. (in Win 7 (64) -> Control Panel > System > Advanced System Settings > Advanced TAB click Environment Variables > Select PATH in System Variables) . Remove unwanted variables.
Having done the above steps, press “Retry” button to continue with the installation.
There you go.... as simple as it is..
