Problem installing Oracle 9i on XP

I am trying to install Oracle 9i (9.2.0.1, 32 bit) on Windows XP Pro
(version 2002, SP 1, Intel P3), but I get an error claiming that Oracle
requires Service Pack 1 or greater, which it thinks my system does not have.
In reality, my system does have service pack 1 and the install doesn't seem
to recognize that. I even tried installing Service Pack 1a, with no
difference.

How can I convince the Oracle install that I do have service pack 1?

Any ideas?

I followed up on this, but this really doesn't offer any help. According
to the table, there is no minimum service pack number for Oracle 9.2.0.1.
The only other interesting information here was that there is a list of
unsupported Oracle features for XP, but all I'm trying to install is the
database.

Any other suggestions?

Regards,
Jason

Overview: Windows 11 and 10 have less user interface control over operating system update behaviour than previous versions of Windows. In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not. For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...
