    Failed installation: The value of the enviroment variable path is more than

    582751
      Hello,
      I got the above error upon attempting to install Oracle Data Provider for .NET (ODP.NET) and ODAC Software, Release 10.1.0.4.0 (http://www.oracle.com/technology/software/tech/windows/ole_db/htdocs/utilsoft.htm) on Windows XP.

      Here is a chunk from the log:
      Calling Action generalActions10.1.0.3.0 setenv
           selectedNodes =
           name = path
           value = C:\oracle\product\10.1.0\Client_2\jre\1.4.2\bin
           append = null
           replace = null

      Exception thrown from action: setenv
      Exception Name: ValueTooLongException
      Exception String: The value of the enviroment variable path is more than 1023 characters. This value cannot be set.
      Exception Severity: 0

      The value of the enviroment variable path is more than 1023 characters. This value cannot be set.



      I've looked at my PATH variable, it is already greater than 1023 characters.

      Any advice as to how I might fix this?

      Thanks in advance.
