    Unanswered: OPatch failed with error code = 74

    When i apply patch, I stop all oracle services and even restart my computer. But i got errors:

    Following files are active :
    D:\11.1.0\db_1\bin\orageneric11.dll
    D:\11.1.0\db_1\bin\orapls11.dll
    D:\11.1.0\db_1\bin\oracore11.dll

    ApplySession failed during prerequisite checks: Prerequisite check "CheckActive
    ilesAndExecutables" failed.
    System intact, OPatch will not attempt to restore the system

    OPatch failed with error code = 74

    Please help.

    Thanks.

    Reboot before re-running opatch
    You can lead some folks to knowledge, but you can not make them think.
    The average person thinks he's above average!
    For most folks, they don't know, what they don't know.

    Yes, I tried. After I reboot the computer. I ran the opatch. It still gave me these errors.

    How you tried renaming the files that are showing as active (e.g. from "file.dll" to "file.dll_old") then re-running opatch?
    90% of users' problems can be resolved by punching them - the other 10% by switching off their PCs.

    This normally means that there is something still accessing these files.

    You might want to check for any backup application services, or "Distributed Transaction Coordinator" service. These might still accessing the Oracle files in the error. Good luck.
