Re: Oracle 8.1.7 Installation problem after 83% installation
first I have to tell you, Oracle 8i isn't certified with Windows XP.
Please also notice Oracle 8i will be desupported with 31-DEC-2003.
But, to try to solve your Problem: There were some Problems using the universal-installer of 8i base release on windows/P4 combination.
I'd suggest to get a newer installer (e.g. from the version 9i release 2)
and try to use this installer with the 'old' installation-CDs.
I installed Oracle 8i on Windows XP and m/c P3. It is working fine.
I installed Oracle 8i on the same P4 m/c having Win 2000 Professional. I changed the OS i.e Win XP, then this problem arised. It is to note that this pc has only Win xp. I tried to install using Oracle 9i installer but not succeeded. So please write me other possible solutions.
