i am unable to install oracle 8i client for win-nt, 2000 on my newly installed win-xp machine. The win-xp machine is running on P-III. I understand that there are bugs with oracle for Pentium-IV which stops running its java based installation program. but don't know why the setup.exe is failing on win-xp. Is there a particular version of oracle 8i client which runs on WIN-XP and is different from the one that we are running(which is meant for win-nt and win-2000)? We tried to copy the entire installation CD on hard disk and ran it from there, but still nothing shows up on the screen when we double click the setup.exe program. There is no error message on screen and nothing else to find out what could be the problem.
could you guys pls mention what is going wrong and what needs to be done to solve this problem.
thanks a lot
