I am trying to install Oracle 9i on my laptop but the Oracle Universal Installer hangs at the "Files Location" page. I am running Windows XP Professional and had Oracle previously installed with no problems. But now it will not install. Any thoughts or ideas on how I can resolve this would be appreciated!
Do you run the setup from the CD or are installation files stored into the directory on your hard disk?
If they are on the HD, check whether they are stored in a directory which has a space character in its name (for example, "c:\oracle installation directory"); if so, try to move them into another directory which does NOT have a space (for example, "C:\ora_inst"). Perhaps it'll help.
