    Unanswered: Oracle automated install

    I am trying to create an install that has NO user input. I need it to install Oracle on a 2000/XP machine, create a database to certain specifications, and start it up with no user intervention. I want to create a CD that the average joe user can just click on INSTALL and xx amount of time later they have a fully functional database. What is the easiest way to do this? Right now I'm using batch files, but it is ugly. I can get Oracle to install silently, but the problem is while Oracle is installing my batch file wont wait until Oracle is done installing before trying to run the database creation (apparently the WAIT command doesnt work, the DOS shell doesnt seem to recognize the new DOS box opening up to do the install).

    Also, is there ANY way to get rid of Oracle making the user press ENTER when it is done installing?

    Have you tried using a Response file? For example, you can install oracle in interactive mode and *record* it to a response file. Then you can later using to install it everywhere with the response file created.

    How did you get Oracle to install silently without a response file to begin with?
