    Hi!
    Your problem is to install Oracle on a pentium4 machine with windows s.o.
    Here the way to do it, on 9i oracle version. For the 8i Oracle version maybe the dll file path is different, but the name is the same.


    Windows XP Pro or Windows 2000 with Pentium 4 only
    · Copy all the files/folders from the Oracle 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.

    Did you rename the symcjit.dll file?

    workaround 1
    ============
    1. Create a temporary directory on your machine.
    2. Copy the contents on the Oracle Server/Client CD to this temp
    directory created in step 1.
    3. Search the directory structure for the existence of a file:
    symcjit.dll.
    4. Rename each file from symcjit.dll to symcjit.old.
    5. Run the setup.exe from the copied "Drive:\install\win32" directory.
    This will ensure a correct installation on an Intel Pentium 4
    machine.

    Hi,

    AIUI, the runtime will use any available version of symcjit.dll, including one already on your machine.

    Ensure you search for and rename *all* copies of the file on your machine as well as the cd structure which you copied.

    Please don't email me directly with questions. I've probably just got home from the pub and cannot guarantee the sanity of my answers. In fact, I can't believe I actually made it home.
