Hi guys,

I am trying to install oracle 9i on my pc. My os is xp and i have already installed 10g(10.1.0) and oracle forms devoloper 9.

After i give a new oracle home and pathe this message pops up.

"There was a problem in accessing the staging area. Please make sure that the specified values for 'source' and 'destination' are valid."

I checked these values and they are correct.

waiting for your reply Smile

Thanks

Oracle checked them and finds they are incorrect. Smile

So what are they, and can you REALLY access them? ( read/write access? )

Source Path = F:\Disk1\stage\products.jar
Oracle Home = 9i_home
path = f:\9i

I can access

What is the "F" disk? If it is a CD/DVD drive, and if "path = F:\9i" represents destination directory, then I'm afraid it is not the best choice for Oracle 9i Home.

How much space do you have in your temp - Directory? ( %tmp% )

Also read this.

my temp is more than 1.5 gb. I read the article still my problem is not solved.

Is it not possible to install 9i on the same system after 10g installation?or is this a reason of misconfiguration of my pc?

I just found this here :

http://www.dbforums.com/archive/index.php/t-1308827.html

Maybe it is worth a shot to try to install the 9.X Version with the 10.X installer already installed ob the system.

Otherwise, de-install everything with the 10.X Installer, clean the registry from everything oracle related, and then try to install the 9.x version before the 10.x version.

Thank You Thomas. I tried same thing on Enterprise Linux also. I got almost same error that says already a oracle home exists. I conclude its something wrong with the installer. when 9i is showing this error i went through these steps with 10g but thats not giving any error at all. so i will try 9i then 10g installation.

Thanks for your time again.. Smile
