DB Migration Oracle universal installer can't be run

Hi All,

This is our infrastructure:

OS: Windows 2000

DB: Oracle 8.1.7

SAP Kernel 46D

We want to upgrade the DB to Oracle 9.2 so we first install Oracle 9.2 and now we want to intall the Patch 9.2.0.7

The problem is that the oracle installer doesn't run!

It gives the following message:

<b>Starting Oracle Universal Installing . . .

No pre-requisite checks found in oraparam.ini, no system pre-requisite checks will be executed.

Preparing to launch Oracle Univeral Installer from C:\DOCUM 1\tvdadm\LOCALS 1\Temp\OraInstall2007-10-08_04-40-18PM. Please Wait...</b>

But it stop. And do nothing.

I found the note <b>833766</b> and try to run this command:

<b>setup.exe -ignoreSysPrereqs</b>

But it didn't run.

Please i need some lights to resolve the problem.

Best Regards,

Desiree Cardenas.

    Hi Desiree,

    Please provide more information on how you are installing oracle. Are you following any installation manual and following the instructions correctly?

    Check the space in your temp folder. This usually occurs when temp folder is out of space.

    Cheers,

    Nisch

    on windows platforms the Path to the Oracle software (for this case patchset) shouldn't be too long, otherweise Installar doesn't start.

    how are the environment variables PATH and ORACLE_HOME?

      Hi!!

      I don't have access to Oracle Metalink, but i resolved the problem, with this note:

      <b>741361</b> -> Problem when installing Oracle Patch set 9.2.0.x

      Basically it was a problem with the DirectX version, we update the version to 9.0 and it finally works!

      In any case thanks a lot for your help! It was very useful.

      Best Regards,

      Desiree Cardenas

    if the long path was not the reason for not running Universal Installer (<i>I had on windows hosts the experience that Universal Installer doesn't start, when the PATH to the software is too long</i>), please check following oracle and SAP notes:

    Note:137200.1: <b>Checklist when Oracle Universal Installer (OUI) fails for Windows</b>

    Note:413972.1: <b>OUI Failure: OUI Doesn't Come Up When Installing an Oracle Product on Windows Platform</b>

    Note:436299.1: <b>Common reasons for OUI failures on the MS Windows platform</b>s

    Note:266617.1 :<b>Oracle Universal Installer (OUI) may appear and then disappear on Windows 2000 with Service Pack 4</b>

    see also more to Universal Installer in the SAP note:

    Best regards
