Oracle recommends running the OUI as an Administrator. However, sometimes using an account that belongs to the Administrator group is not enough.
Thus, whenever there is a problem running the OUI, we will recommend using the Local Administrator account.
Make sure you do not have any spaces in the directory name, where you are installing the software from.
This includes new installs and patches. If a space exists in the directory name, you will need to remove it.
Another place to check for spaces is in the TEMP and TMP variables. These are used for the initial installation, for a temporary location for the OUI. However, if a space exists in the TEMP and TMP variables, the OUI will fail. By Default, Windows sets the TEMP and TMP locations for a user, to: C:\Documents and Settings\%UserProfile%\Local Settings\Temp.
Notice the spaces in the directory names.
This should be changed to something like: C:\TEMP (NOTE: Make sure the directory exists).
