Hi.
I’m sure this is covert somewhere but I did not get anything that help me when i did a search so:
I packaged oracle 10 and everything seems more or less good except when logging as another user the application self repair when clicking on the shortcuts. It repairs every time I click on a shortcut, when I’m logged as any other user. It is a per machine install.
What should I be looking for to fix this?

Question: Does your company have any policy against using a vendor's installer instead of repackaging?
Oracle is particularly complicated. It would be better if you used the Oracle Universal Installer so that it installs everything correctly, updates the Path, implements proper Oracle Home management, etc. Repackaging strips away all of this intelligence.

That said, have you run a full set of validation checks against your MSI? There's probably a bad keypath somewhere that is making Windows Installer think that the package needs to be repaired.

But don't waste your time repackaging if you don't have to. If you can, use OUI. Do you have any other Oracle clients in your environment? That complicates things even more.

He's right, but I'll also add that you can look in the Application section of the Event Viewer to see what component is being repaired. Then go into your MSI and search for that component.

Oracle is very advanced and I'd avoid repackaging it if at all possible.
