Can't install to OCSM client installation

I am trying to install Oracle ver 2.5 production drivers (DB is Oracle 7.3 for NT) to a netware directory. The network directory is registered in Windows 95 as the Oracle
home and when I run the installer I get the message "Your current Oracle home S:\ORAWIN95 is an OCSM client installation managed by your system administrator. You may not install or remove products in this home."

Out network administator has not placed a block on this directory, and the problem seems computer specific since I am able to install the drivers from another machine. As far as I know, we did not use a configuration manager to create the S:\ORAWIN95 directory.

Does anyone know what I should be looking out for?

Thanks in advance for your time and help.

Hi :)

What might have happened is that someone might have used this pc before to install some component in the shared directory and those entries are recorded in the registry.

If this is not an issue that u have OCSM or not then u can do one thing. U go to other pc from which u do not have any problem and export the following registry key

[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\ORACLE]

(Just choose the ORACLE key and then click on the REGISTRY menu item and then choose Export and give a file name and save it)

The u delete the key in the troubled PC make sure u do export the Key in the trouble PC just in case if u need to get back to it.

Now just double click on the exported registry file and it should do the trick.
