    Unanswered: Oracle 9i won't install

    Please help me with this problem.

    I did everything the intructions in oracle.com said to install oracle9i after downloading the 3 disk images, but the setup.exe file doesn't run.

    I tried to fix this but I couldn't, maybe if someone emails me the setup.exe file of the oracle 9i installation.

    txs

    Saying it "Doesn't run" is like going to the doctor & saying "it hurts" &
    now give me a cure.

    There are many, many, many possible reasons why it "doesn't run".
    How is anyone supposed to be able to tell you the EXACT solution
    to your problem when you don't even share with us what OS & version
    you are using?

    To make it work you need a mauve database.

    sorry

    your right, my os is XP SP1, when I say that it does not run I mean that it doesn't even open a window and crash or something like that. My exe file size is 27136 bytes.

    txs for answering so fast

    Well, I am doing something.
    I downloaded Oracle 9.2.0.2 for Linux and am now installing that on our Linux box.


    Regarding your situation, please state the name of the download file you downloaded. Is it on CD or did you throw it on disk?

    Red face same problem: wont install

    -
    -
    With Sybase it was just as simple as copying the CD to the local drive and starting it up.
    It does seem to start but just gives me an error:
    The Java RunTime Environment was not found at ..stage/Components/oracle.swd.fre/1.1.7.30/1/DataFiles/Expanded/jre\binjrew.exe
    Hence the Oracle Universal Installer cannot be run.
    Please install JRE version 1.1.7 or higher.
    I currently have J2RE 1.3.1.09 installed and restarted since.
    My system is XP
    The Oracle version I have is Oracle8i
    I just want to install the equivalent to ISQL (SQL client interface) but I cant get the old man to stand up for me

    Hints/Help please.
    Arent there any Oracle oracles out there?

    I found out on the net that you have to copy it to the local drive

    --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Windows XP Pro or Windows 2000 with Pentium 4 only

    Copy all the files/folders from the oracle 8i CD on to a folder on your c: drive. Do NOT name this folder Oracle.
    Change the name of the symcjit.dll file.
    For Windows XP: Change from symcjit.dll to symcjit_disc.dll
    For Windows 2000: Change the symcjit.dll to symcjit.dll.ori
    The path to this file is:
    C:\stage\components\oracle.swd.jre\1.1.7.30\1\Data Files\Expanded\jre\win32\bin
    Now go back to your main c: drive directory and run the setup file.
    And the SQL client (like ISQL but not near as user friendly) seems to be SQL*Plus Worksheet.

    Now my remaining question is:

    doesnt Oracles have nice idiot lights and tools for selecting tables and columns?
    (you would think so considering there are more idiots using Oracle )
