I am trying to install Oracle 10g Release 1 in Windows Xp Professional Edition SP2

When I run the universal installer I get the following error when I press next after specifying file locations

"Invalid staging area . There are no top level components for Windows NT , Windows 2000 available in this staging area '

The logs file in the location C:\Program Files\Oracle\Inventory\logs contains the following information

*** Specify File Locations Page***
Setting the 'SourceLocation ( FROM_LOCATION )' property to 'E:\10g\install\../stage/products.xml'. Received the value from the UI page.
Setting the 'OracleHome ( ORACLE_HOME )' property to 'E:\oracle\product\10.1.0\db_1'. Received the value from the UI page.
Setting the 'OracleHomeName ( ORACLE_HOME_NAME )' property to 'OraDb10g_home1'. Received the value from the UI page.
Initializing OUI access setup
Setting variable 'ORACLE_HOME' to 'E:\oracle\product\10.1.0\db_1'. Received the value from the UI page.

Hi,
if you already installed oracle software in your desktop then first remove completely and try to install again.
