My computer suffered many unninstallations and installations of different Oracle versions.
Now I have intalled an Oracle 10.2.3 version, I want to uninstall it and to install it again to get a right settup.
The problem is that the last time I unistalled I deleted many entries of the registry following this intructions: http://www.filibeto.org/sun/lib/nonsun/oracle/
And now my OUI doesn´t uninstall anything, it begin the progess bar and the percentages numbers but before to get the 100% it close all the OUI and any file is delete.
I think this is caused because of some missing registry entry.

Anyone can tell me how to uninstall it manually with no OUI and taking into account that I have to install Oracle 10.2.3 again after that?

delete HKLM\Software\Oracke
c:\Oracle (or where ever you installed it)
c:\program files\oracle
remove Oracle from the Path and then reboot. that will be as if Oracle was never there.

This route will, of course, remove ALL versions of Oracle which, given the state in which you seem to have left the machine, won't be a bad idea.

There may also be entries in HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall\Oracle.

Just did this recently.

I didn't need to remove any registry keys, but the following dirs needed to be gone before it would reinstall:


\app\base is where we had the initial client installed to so change to wherever yours is installed to.
