Oracle Installer forces OraHome92 path to E disk


I don't know much about Oracle and I am trying to install a WAS 620 on Win 2003. I'd like to do a database restore and therefore I need my Oracle Home to be C:\oracle\ora92, exactly as in source system. However, Oracle Installer forces the path "E:\oracle\ora92" for name "OraHome92". If I try to change disk from "E" to "C", then the name field changes to "OraHome9". Ending "2" is deleted, and when I try to type it back in, the disk in the path changes back to "E" and so it goes in circles. Anyway, the combination of disk "C" in path and name "OraHome92" seems to be forbidden. Why? Is there anything I can do?

    To restore whu u need to install oracle ?

    Any way here are some details about oracle_home,

    You can use Oracle Universal Installer to install Oracle products in any of the three following modes:

    Interactive:GUI mode

    Suppressed:to supply the necessary information by using a combination of a response file or command line entries

    Silent: to bypass the graphical user interface and supply the necessary information in a response file

    The oraparam.ini file is the initialization file for OUI where u can change certail default parameters.

    Or in windows u can have a look on env variable ie ORACLE_HOME and PATH.

    Different homes cannot share the same location.

    Hope this will solve ur problem.

    Let me know if u need any more info....
