I removed my Oracle 10g express from my XP Professional according the the blog at

Then I downloaded (1824539KB) from oracle and unzipped it.

If I click either setup.exe or oui.exe, a dos console pops up and shows the following:

Starting Oracle Universal Installer...

Checking monitor: must be configured to display at least 256 colors Higher than 256 . Actual 4294968296 Passed

Preparing to launch Oracle Universal Installer from C:\DOCUME~1\Owner \LOCALS~1\Temp\OraInstall2008-02-17_01-10-35PM. Please wait ...

It hangs there for about 1 minute and disappears, and nothing happens. Tried it a few times, and every time it was the same behavior.

Am I missing anything critical? How can I install 11g on XP Pro? Thank you very much. Received on Mon Feb 18 2008 - 08:42:52 CST
