I downloaded the latest Oracle versions for studying. (I don't have a metalink account because I am actually not working)

I want to install Oracle Database 11g + Oracle Developer Suite 10g on the same Windows XP Desktop. I did the following steps :

- Install Oracle Database 11g in ORACLE_HOME "C:\oracle\product\11.1.0\db_1".
- Create a database DEV
- Startup database DEV, listener and configure sqlnet.ora+tnsnames.ora
- Connect to the database with sqlplus system@dev => connection succeeded
- Install Oracle Developer Suite 10g in ORACLE_HOME "c:\oracle\product\DevSuiteHome_1" and choose Installation Type "Complete (1.13 GB)"

When I install Oracle Developer Suite 10g I receive the following error:

Oracle Developer Suite 10g (10.1.2.0.2) cannot be installed into existing Oracle9i 9.2.0.1.0 or higher Oracle Home.

I don't understand why I receive this error. Oracle Developer Suite creates a seperate Oracle Home, so I don't understand why the error says that it tries to install into an existing Oracle Home.

What must I do to solve this problem?

Strange, really ...

Did you try to manually type new Oracle Home for Developer Suite 10g? I.e. do not accept what the Universal Installer offers, but name that directory, for example, "c:\oracle\product\ds10g".

P.S. Forgot to mention: check Windows registry; perhaps you'll find "something" unusual. Perhaps you might delete Developer Suite 10g from registry as well (if installer wrote something in there).

I tried to install to c:\oracle\product\ds10g, I recieve the same error.

Before installing Oracle 11g database I deleted the registry entry HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\ORACLE completely. So it's not a registry problem.

Actually the registry entry HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\ORACLE only contains the entries "KEY_orahome11g" and "SYSMAN". "KEY_orahome11g" is the Oracle home from Oracle 11g database.

In the documentation I only found a section "Preventing Conflicts With Other Oracle Homes" but it only applies to Linux and Solaris, NOT to Windows.

Any other suggestions?

As you have deleted the registry entry, I suggest deleting the Database directory, reinstall the database, get it working, and try installing the Developer but give it a new home name. I didn't think that the installer would give a new name but would try to use the last used 'home'.

I assume that you did reboot the PC acouple of times between the installs.
