    Urgent - Problem with 817 patches

    On Win2k, I get the following error message only.........

    "Certain files which need to be re-installed are being used by one or more applications"

    I've stopped the Distributed Transaction coord service, with no effect.

    Any ideas ?

    See Control Panel/Services and if any of Oracle services is running, stop it.
    It may be listener, http server, even the database

    I'm using Terminal Server to connect to the Server.

    I've copied the Patches to the server c: drive and double click the setup.exe. This starts up the universal installer.

    In the source textbox I put
    \Patches\8172 NT\81721\81721\stage\products.jar

    When it gets to 'Processing LDAP required support files'

    it fails with the message I first posted.

    HELP !!!..........

    All relevant services were shut down.

    BUT..........

    we went through the rest shutting them down one at a time and retrying.

    The culprit was the TRELLISOFT agent - I believe it is to do with NT recognising our Backup Tapes.

    Thanks for the prompt input.

    I dont think its a good practise to do patching over terminal services. I prefer being at the console itself. Terminal serviceas have been known to freezeup at times...
