Hi there!

I'am trying to do a silent uninstall with the responsefile clientadmin.rsp supplied by oracle. The silent install works fine but the uinstall just won't work(setup.exe -silent -responsefile ... -deinstall). The silentInstall.log tells me that the installation has been successfully finished. There also seems to be nothing wrong in the installActions.log. Has anyone of you come across the same problem?

No, sorry - I repackaged the app into an MSI.

The Oracle installer is notoriously bad - I'm surprised you managed to get the silent install to work at all [:D]

Cheers,
Rob.

I repackaged it into an MSI as well. The Oracle installer requires Java to run and it wants to install its own version of Java within the Oracle files. This $^#%ed up the Java configuration that took us FOREVER to nail down so that everything works. Repackaged it so it can be installed without the Java junk. If you use Java and/or have apps that want particular versions of Java, I strongly recommend repackaging Oracle Client into an MSI.

I just repackaged this beast too. Are you saying that I could remove all the JRE/JDK folders from my MSI? Is there no need to for the Uni Installer later on?

While I'm at it. . . does anyone know if the service created during the Oracle 9i install is needed on a client machine?

Thanks

Hello,

I never succeeded to uninstall Oracle.
The only solution I've found is to do is:

1 - Remove ODBC :
reg delete "HKLM\Software\ODBC\ODBC.INI\ODBC Data Sources" /v "name" /f
etc...
reg delete "HKLM\SOFTWARE\ODBC\ODBCINST.INI\ODBC Drivers" /v "Oracle dans OUIHome1" /f
reg delete "HKLM\SOFTWARE\ODBC\ODBCINST.INI\Oracle dans OUIHome1" /f

2 - Remove Oracle
rmdir /Q /S "C:\OraHome_1"
rmdir /Q /S "C:\Program Files\Oracle"
reg delete "HKLM\SOFTWARE\Oracle" /f

3 - And installation new version and the ODBC and copy of Tsname.

And is ok.
