    Saying "won't install; please advise";
    is about as useful as going to the doctor
    and saying "It hurts, please make it stop".

    My crystal ball is broken.

    You have NOT provided any useful information
    that might give a clue as to what is really wrong.

    Re: Oracle Express Installation

    Hi,

    When i double clicking the SETUP.EXE file, there is no response at all.
    Even i am not getting the Oracle Universal Installar window also. Noting proceeds after that. So, i am not able to install. With the same CD i tried to install in Windows NT, it is working fine. (For your confirmation, not the CD problem)

    Hi,

    If you have a previous installation of Oracle, try the Universal INstaller from the oracle for windows directory.
    Otherwise, try startmenu / run and type "D:\setup" (change D if your CD has another letter"
    Otherwise try to start the file setup.exe in a directory called install (you can recognize this other setup.exe by it's icon, it shows the universal installer)

    Good luck

    Question

    Hi Edwin,

    Thanks for your help. With the first option i am able to install the Express. But it is hanging while 'Installing NLS Required Support Files 8.1.6.0.0' Product. I am attaching the installActions.log and oraInstall.err files. Can you please check this and give the reason.

    Thanks in advance.

    Hi,

    I'm sorry but i cannot see the attachment (i'm a bit new to this forum), but i think i've seen the problem.
    Go to the Oracle_home in which you installed express, to the network admin directory and delete any files there (probably the only file there is the tnsnames.ora).
    Then try your installation again, and I think it will run smoothly.

    Looks like some java pieces are missing ... or maybe the classpath isn't set on that machine?

    Hi,

    Finally i succeded in installing Oracle Express Server in Windows XP with Oracle Express Server 6.3.2 for NT. But, Oracle Express Server service is not starting. I am getting this error while i am trying to start from the Windows Services.

    "Windows could not start the Oracle Express Server 6.3.2.0.0 on Local Computer. For more information, review the System Event Log. If this is a non-Microsoft service, contact the service vendor, and refer to service-specific error code 40."

    Can some help me in this please.

    Thanks in advance.

    Hi,

    This is what metalink has to say about the specic error 40:

    Quote:
    Error 40 is an NT fail safe error, which by itself doesn't mean a lot. You can create an event log that will provide you with detailed information about why you are receiving this error. Follow this procedure to set up the log file: 1) Start the Configuration Manager. 2) Select the OES instance for which you want to create a log. Edit Setting dialog windows will display. 3) On the File I/O tab folder, click on the EventLogPath. 4) Enter the directory path into the value column. 5) Select Set. There will be a stream of entries in the log file that include errors for each attempt at starting the 6.0 service. Search the log for the error 40, then review the errors on either side of it. You will see a more specific error such as "unable to allocate enough virtual memory" or "login failed error 1326". These more specific errors will lead you to the root of your current problem. For example, a common cause of this error is, if you specified a domain account, it mishandled the password validation, and behaved as if password validation had failed. This usually is associated with error 1314 or 1326 in the event log. To resolve this problem, let the configuration manager create a new account without a specifying a domain.

    hi,

    Look at the OESEvent.log to see what error messages are in it.
