This Oracle installer is written in Java. Check the Java (at least Java runtime) on your PC it should be 1.4.2 or newer. Java actually has runtime settings in two environments:
1. DOS. Type in the Windows Command prompt command
and you will see your Java version
2. Windows. Check in the Windows Registry (run Regedit) the key:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\JavaSoft\Java Runtime Environment
Your Java version is pointed by the value of CurrentVersion
Note. Even if you installed the latest Java these versions can be altered if you install afterwards some other products (for instance Java IDE).
The latest Java (runtime and SDK) can be downloaded from http://java.sun.com and the latest version is 1.4.2_04.
Hi Lucas, try the hint from the release notes
10.1 Installation on Windows 2000 with Service Pack 4
Oracle Universal Installer may appear and then disappear on Windows 2000 with Service pack 4. This is because of an underlying JRE bug. There are three workarounds, depending on what you are installing.
For an Enterprise Manager Grid Control installation, run
For an Oracle Database installation, run
For a Cluster Ready Services installation, run
Vladimir and Jan-Erik,
Thanks for your suggestions. Unfortunately, I have performed the checks you suggest and used the shortcut mentioned in the release notes, but still my installer disappears after loading the installation types.
I would very much welcome other suggestions!
Note: I did manage to install the 10g Client without any shortcuts or difficulties.
I have the same problem, on the same configuration.
When the OUI dies, it leaves behind a file in c:\temp\hs_err_pidXXX.log, with this content:
An unexpected exception has been detected in native code outside the VM.
Unexpected Signal : EXCEPTION_ACCESS_VIOLATION (0xc0000005) occurred at PC=0x1EEE23CD

I have the same problem on Windows 2000 SP 3.
I hadn't the problem with Windows XP. I hope that anybody would find a workaround.
OK, I found my error, which appears to be a known bug in the Universal Installer.
My computer previously had Oracle9iAS with IFS (CMSDK) installed. As such, in the windows registry, under HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services I
found an service named "OracleServiceIFSCTLSERVICE".
This particular service lacks some information, making the universal installer die. To fix, rename this key in registry to something NOT starting with "Oracle*", e.g. "oldOracleServiceIFSCTLSERVICE", and install. Then rename back.
I had the same problem with Windows XP.
Eiriks solution worked fine, thank you
I have the same problem installing the 10g client on a windows 2000 server with sp4 .
I tried the recomended fixes with the short cut but I get an error "failed to load virtual machine"
Is there a fix for the install yet or is there a work around for my situation?
I must have fat fingered the command line for the setup.
It worked as indicated above
I tried all the combinations/advice etc. mentioned in earlier posts without any luck.
More specifically following
-installed newer version of java
-Ran install\setup.exe -J-Dsun.java2d.noddraw=true
-no Oracle services running
Same problem on same platform
Any other workaround...
I just wanted to say THANK YOU to Eirik Lygre. Your tip about the OracleServiceIFSCTLSERVICE was exactly my problem.
I appreciate you taking the time to post your comment. It was a tremendous help.
I find out that installing the directX 9.c instead of the default directX 7 allow the Oracle Universal Installer to appear on the screen !
Hope this will help
For me setup -jreLoc <location> worked perfectly
Replace <> with the path to your JRE
for me was "setup -jreLoc C:\PROGRA~1\Java\jre1.5.0_06"
Unfortunately the solutions posted here didn't work for me.
Hope that this will work for others as well.
Thanks, the last tip also helped on windows 2003 64-bit Itanium OS & 10gR2 Client installation.
