    Oracle 8i on Windows XP professional => Yes
    Windows XP Home => No.

    Does anyone know when Oracle plans to release(if at all) the XP Home compliant version.

    I was able to install on XP Prof as well - the work around worked for me (renaming all copies symcjit.dll and then try running the install program from the install/win32/ directory) If you have access to a 9i install program, I've heard that using that to instal 8i works as well.

    symcjit.dll problem is only with Pentium4, if you have XP on aother processor, you should be fine.
