I have to install “Oracle Data Access Software for Windows Release” or
in fact just the followin 4 packages:

"Oracle Services for Microsoft Transaction Server"
"Oracle O D B C Driver"
"Oracle Provider for OLE D B"
"Oracle Objects for OLE"

I created four answer files using

setup -record –destinationFile

and a VBS script which will launch

setup.exe -silent -nowelcome –responseFile file.rsp

My question is:

Setup program is launching Javaw.exe and exits which make difficult
to track the installation (to know when installation is done).

I inserted a 60 seconds delay in my script and then check in memory for
javaw.exe but of course this makes the installation process to take longer
than normal and sometimes I had some problems.

Does anybody know how can I use javaw.exe directly whiteout of using
setup.exe or is there another way to know when the installation is done?

I found here that :


Using the Oracle Universal Installer Exit Codes
The Oracle Universal Installer returns one of the following exit codes:

Code Description
0 All installations were successful
1 All installation were successful but some optional configuration tools failed
-1 At least one installation failed

Note that:

This feature will not work if the Oracle Universal Installer is running in "bootstrap" mode. In this case setup.exe/runInstaller will just launch the JRE process and return immediately without waiting for the exit code. The Oracle Universal Installer will be running in "bootstrap" mode if the following line exists in the file "oraparam.ini":


If you exit without installing any products (for example if you exit from the "Welcome" screen), the exit code will be -1.
