    Unhappy Oracel patch - files in used

    Hi All,

    I try to apply the Oracle patch to my DB I shutdown down all database and the services with Oracle_xxx. but when the setup program running it raise an error - Certain files which need to be re-installed ... are being used by one or more applications' when the status showing "Processing RDBMS Required Support Files Patc....." at 88%.

    Form the message it didn't tell which files/application was inuse.
    Is anyway I can find out what file/application are opened. the system is Windwos 2K sp4 / Oracle

    Any help is much apprecated.

    Some times this happens on windows platform.
    Turn all Oracle services to MANUAL mode in services pannel so that these oculd not start automatically and then restart the server.
    Now apply tha patch and i believe this time you should be succeeded. After patching, again trun all Oracle services to AUTO (Which you want to be AUTO)
