    Unanswered: 9.2.0.6 patch

    I've run into a weird problem on a few user machines that I can't seem to figure out. They have 9.2.0.4 client currently installed, running XP Pro with SP2. When I try to execute the patch, I get a dialog that says there are conflicting services running that must be shut down before the installation can continue. There are about 25 services listed, some of which include "Workstation", "Alerter", and "COM+"... all services which are fairly standard.

    Anyone run into this before? Know how to work around it?

    sometimes the installer on the client side might install some auto-start services. I suggest looking for any "Oracle" services in the START\SETTINGS\control panel\admin tools\services

    My guess: OracleMTSRecoveryService is auto-started

    Otherwise, maybe open task manager and look for some crazy Oracle service running.

    Sorry about that ... continuation of prior message ...

    1 fix:
    I've disabled IIS Admin Service.

    After a reboot it's work fine

    Another

    Bug 3640779 gives a workaround that worked for me. The public version of that bug ends with:
    feedback from somebody that succeeded to install the patchset by:
    - renaming all the dll beginning with oci*.dll in the bin directory.
    - reboot the PC
    - restart the patchset install
    - and it works

    I opened a TAR and confirmed that this is an appropriate solution. The analyst I spoke with said booting in safe mode is also a good general solution. He also talked about taking Oracle Home out of the enviroment settings as a way to proceed.

    Great Gregg!

    I looked all over Metalink and never thought to look up issues with the Universal Installer. Thank you! If you ever make it out to Oklahoma, look me up... I owe you a drink!

    Basically, renamed OCI*.DLL files, restarted, and it installed!
