    Installation Error - Environment Variable (PATH) Oracle 11g R2

    932175
      Hello everyone,

      I'm getting this error during the installation process:

      Checks:
      Environment Variable "PATH"
      Environment variable: "PATH" - This test checks whether the length of the environment variable "PATH" does not exceed the recommended length.
      Expected Value
       : 1023
      Actual Value
       : 1282
       List of errors:
       - 
      PRVF-3929 : Adding the Oracle binary location to the PATH environment variable will exceed the OS length limit of [ "1023" ] for the variable on the node "SONYVAIO-PC"  - Cause:  The installer needs to update the PATH environment variable to include the value "%ORACLE_HOME%/bin;". However, doing so will cause PATH to exceed the maximum allowable length that this operating system allows.  - Action:  Ensure that the sum of the lengths of your current PATH environment variable and that of "%ORACLE_HOME%/bin;" does not exceed the operating system limit. Restart the installer after correcting the setting for environment variable.

      How could i fixed that ?

      Thanks in advanced.

          make the length of the %PATH% variable shorter

            Hi,
            To add to sb, make the path shorter or you can ignore the error, but after the installation completion, verify that the $ORACLE_HOME/bin is added to the PATH variable.
