Hi,
I downloaded oracle 8i personal edition on my windows 98 PC.
When I install it my computer just "HANGS". I also tried a CD in which my friend had downloaded form oracle site and installed it in his windows 98 PC, but that doesn't work either. I installed jre 1.3 also, but nothing seems to work.......
I don't know what to do ?

What else do you have running? Is Norton Anti-Virus running? That could be causing problems. Try turning it off during the install, if it's on. HTH

Ofcourse, I close all the applications during installing any program.

Stanley,
sorry , i misunderstood before that i have to close the virus program.
This time I disabled the Norton Antivirus and it installed correctly.
Thanks very much

Your welcome
I had problems with anti-virus software while installing too. The problem arises because it scans *every* single file you're trying to install. Now that really makes a big difference. Turning it off usually solves the problem especially on older computers. Good luck!
