Can't select my oracle_home in sapinst



I am installing NW Mobile 7.1 on Windows/Oracle.

I expierence a strange problem.

1. First i install Oracle 10g

2. Then I install path (if I remember correct)

3. Then I Start SAPINST

When SAPINST reach the step u201COracle Databaseu201D u2013 Enter the parameters of the database system.

Then i get a drop down box where I have to select the Oracle_Home which I want to use for the installation. My problem is, that I can NOT select the newly installed Oracle_Home. I can choose the other running SAP instanceu2019s Oracle_Home though, but not the new one.

I install Oracle as the local Administrator, and I continue to install SAP with the same user.

Oracle_Home is set correct in the environment for the user, and oracle_home\bin is also in the PATH environment variable.

Why cant I choose the newly installed Oracle_Home for my new SAP system?
