Oracle8i Client 8.1.7 Installation

P: n/a
Hi,

I read a lot of threads about Oracle8i Client 8.1.7 installation. I
did not succeed to install this product on a Pentium 4 Windows NT
workstation.
I downloaded the patch number 1507768 from metalink. The installation
failed too. I downloaded a SUN JRE 1.1.8.16 from SUN archives
products. Same result : installation failed.
I did not download Oracle Universal Installer 2.2.0.12.0 and JRE
1.3.1.1.0a. (Oracle8i Client Release Notes Release 3 (8.1.7.0.0) for
Windows XP) from metalink. Must I download it to install Oracle8i
Client 8.1.7?

I downloaded Oracle9i Client 9.2.0 and I installed it successfully on
that workstation. Is installing Oracle9i Client 9.2.0 the best
solution? What kind of problems will I encounter with Oracle8i
servers? What kind of problems will I encounter with Windows XP
workstations?

Thanks

Stephane

the installer fails because of p4 bug!

you have to copy the CD on a HD then rename

symcjit.dll to symcjit.dll.old

now you can proceed with your installation
