Before we were using SMS we installed a bunch of copies of Oracle 9i manually with the Administrative install. We would like to uninstall that version and install a version that I have created a response file for. I am having a problem getting the uninstall to work. Does the default Administrative install use a response file that i can use to use the -deinstall option? TIA.

See if you can edit one of Oracle's "canned" response files to fit your needs. Also keep in mind that Oracle actually made syntax mistakes in some of its documentation regarding the response files. Some of this information is in the packages section on this site.

Well I got the uninstall to work, but there is still one problem that I have. The uninstall never ends. It will just leave the javaw.exe running until you manually kill the process or restart the machine. Does anybody have a solution to this problem?

Unfortunately not a lot you can do since Oracle has chosen to use its own java installer rather than Windows Installer. You could write a script to monitor processes and kill javaw.exe.

The difficulty would be in timing that until you're sure the uninstall is complete.

be careful if you use this on a machine with more than one version.

there is no reference counting at all in Oracle and it will toast anything it likes during uninstall.
