The syntax for creating .iss file: Path of the setup -r -f1"path of the .iss file"
If it is not working, then try for silent installation. So that u can go for wrapper.
If that is also not working co for setup capture.

I'm not sure abt the answer. Even i'm a newbie. Pls check with seniors.

Using a response file doesnt cater for reference counting type scenario's.

Uninstallation of some versions of Oracle using response files can cause removal of shared Oracle Components.

If you choose to go down this path be aware this can be an issue, something worth testing for.

If you go down the path of repackaging you may need to deal with the Mutiple Oracle Homes issues as well. I think this version may not have that problem though.

Are you who I think you are btw ?

But now i need to know witch component points what i needed.
for example:
If I want to install from "patch13" specific components like "Oracle Query Builer" OR "Orale TCP/IP Protocol Adapter

Where can i find the list of the component in Command-Line install?

Have a look for the NT.PRD file - this should list the various components and the associated values you can use on the command line in combination with the /prd and /install switches.

Make sure you also use the response file you originally recorded.

The following is an example of a command line installing only the "Forms Runtime", "Graphics Runtime" & "SQL*Plus" from Oracle Forms and Reports v6

orainst /silent /prd <full path to NT.PRD> /install w32grun60,w32frun60,w32plus80 /rspsrc <Full Path to Your rsp file>

The command for your own requirement will look something similar to the above, just replace the comma separated list with your own comma separated list of components taken from the NT.PRD file for Oracle 6.
