Has anyone tried to package Oracle 10g?

During the installation of Oracle it creates a c:\temp\Oracle####### folder and then installs from there. When I do a capture of this, it saves it as windows\temp\oracle#######. Then during the install I get error 2714, which is Invalid value for default folder name.

How do I get around this?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Gidday Dockland,

Try this, I used Wise to create a setup capture on a clean XP SP2 virtual PC. I did all the prep work before running the setup (ie make dirs. etc). The zip files were provided by the vendor.

1. append to system variable PATH %ProgramFiles%\Oracle\Client10_1
2. add new system variable TNS_ADMIN & set it to %ProgramFiles%\Oracle\Network\Admin
3. mkdir C:\Program Files\Oracle\Client10_1
4. unzip -instantclient-basic-win32-10.1.0.4-20050513.zip (unzip this one first) &
instantclient-odbc-win32-10.1.0.4-20050514.zip - it will create a directory called C:\Oracleclient\instantclient10_1
5. Copied instantclient-basic-win32-10.1.0.4-20050513.zip contents to the C:\Program Files\Oracle\Client10_1 directory.
6. execute C:\Oracleclient\instantclient10_1\instantclient10_1\odbc_install.exe
7. mkdir C:\Oracleclient\instantclient10_1\network\admin
8. copy sqlnet.ora & TNSNAMES.ORA into this directory
9. imported odbc.reg (with my customised odbc information) after creating the wsi file.

The important registry setup information required in the capture:

Key Value Name Before Value After Value
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\ODBC\ODBCINST.INI\ODBC Drivers Oracle in Client10_1 - Installed
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\ODBC\ODBCINST.INI\Oracle in Client10_1 APILevel - 1
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\ODBC\ODBCINST.INI\Oracle in Client10_1 ConnectionFunctions - YYY
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\ODBC\ODBCINST.INI\Oracle in Client10_1 CPTimeout - 60
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\ODBC\ODBCINST.INI\Oracle in Client10_1 Driver - C:\Program Files\Oracle\Client10_1\SQORA32.dll
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\ODBC\ODBCINST.INI\Oracle in Client10_1 DriverODBCVer - 03.51
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\ODBC\ODBCINST.INI\Oracle in Client10_1 FileUsage - 0
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\ODBC\ODBCINST.INI\Oracle in Client10_1 Setup - C:\Program Files\Oracle\Client10_1\SQORAS32.DLL
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\ODBC\ODBCINST.INI\Oracle in Client10_1 SQLLevel - 1

Make sure you increment all shared dll's.

I hope that helps.

Cheers
