    Oracle 8.1.7 on Pentium 4 bugs,Oracle installer won’t run on Pentium 4

    do the following step:

    1. copy the entire CD to somewhere on your hard drive
    2. go to the INSTALL folder and edit the file named oraparam.ini( oracle817\install\oraparam.ini)
    3. open this file and
    edit from
    JRE_MEMORY_OPTIONS=-mx96m

    To:
    JRE_MEMORY_OPTIONS=-nojit –mx96m


    Save it and start to install by using the software that you have copy to your hard drive

    Good luck

    how do you run Oracle Installer????

    On 8.1.7 do this:

    open the Oracle folder on your Hard drive -> autorun folder -> double click on autorun executable not autorun icon ok !!!!!

    hope this help
