    Oracle 9206 patch

    Im tring to install a patch for oracle 9.2.
    The 9206 patch.
    When i run the install it tells me that a file is in use.
    Even if i close every service related to oracle.

    So i rebooted the server in safe mode(windows 2000).
    I want to run the setup, but it cannot in 256 colors!!!


    So now im tring the silent mode.
    I get the error:

    *** Specify File Locations Page***
    Error:Values for the following variables could not be obtained from the command line or response file(s):
    ORACLE_HOME(OracleHome),
    ORACLE_HOME_NAME(OracleHomeName)
    Silent install cannot continue.


    Here is the begininng of my responsefile

    I'm not sure about the silent install but...

    If you're on Windows, get process explorer from www.sysinternals.com and use the "Find Handle" option to such for files such as "ora"

    Assuming all the oracle services are shut down you may find the MS Distributed Transaction Coordinator has got hold of some file or other. It could also be antivirus software.

    Once you've found the process and killed it, you're GUI patch should be OK.

    Cheers

    Make sure that all Oracle9i services are stopped. Check in Services.

    Im wondering how you installed the base Oracle9i version without the 256 color error or is the installer version of different for Oracle9i 9.2.0.6.0 patch.

    Try using the base Oracle9i(the one you are trying to patch) installer and choose product.xml from the patch and then try.

    Yesss, That happened to me also when I install patch 10.1.0.4. in WIN2K.
    Oracle install cant proceed becoz it says there are still services in used.
    I even stop all the services that are running even ALL the services
    not related to oracle, so no more windows service is up but still it
    wont proceed. I cant understand why oracle not just display the
    show-stoper services that it found open to make life easier.

    What i did is reformat the server and fresh clean install everything.
    Good thing its just a test server.

    As I said, process exploer can find all file handles in use using CTRL-F. Just put something like "ORA" or "Oracle" in the search box. The MSDTC process is always a good place to start for me.
