Just wondering if it is possible to make Oracle 11.2 client go into the 'Program Files' directory...


I guess I should clarify...only using the response file or vbs, not re-packaging with any capture utility.


When creating the response file using the OUI, it doesn't allow any directory with a space, or a tilde, which basically kills the 'Program Files' directory. It also didn't allow me to put the path into quotes.



Has anyone ever used a variable defined in the response file or know if it would even work?

You will experience an unprecedented World Of Pain by attempting that. Heck, this junk still uses PATH and other environment variables so to expect it to use the recommended Windows installation location is a massive ask.

No but in some ways it was like the govt - lots of empire building, entrenched managers who'd been there forever, politics etc. One manager who complained to my agency that I was on google groups (mostly work related), was the same manager who used to take DAYS off to do his side real estate biz, flip houses etc. He's still there. Another lady who claimed to be working remotely, they discovered her laptop could not even access the company network. It was kind of surreal...lots of empty corridors that seemed to lead nowhere, empty machinery bays. Lots of bad attitude from management and union folks too.
