Well, I have a question for you.  :)

Do you actually have the silent install working?

If so, you're probably the first person on the planet to do so.

Also, what's your platform?  They're not all quite the same.

Hi alex,

for un-installing oracle in slient mode from OUI is not possible as to do that you need response file. and oracle does not provide the response file to do un-install.

Hope this helps

I guess you are asking remove Oracle with OUI, but not manually remove file.

First remove all database. Then unistall Oracle software.

Remove database:  
NT platform: use Database Configuration Assistant, on GUI window, choose Delete a Database, then choose the database you want to detele. Delete them one by one.

UNIX platform:  type  dbassist to bring up Database Configuration Assistant window. You need X window capability to show GUI window. You can use console, CDE window or X window with eXceed or ReflectionX. Then do the same thing on NT to delete database.

Uninstall Oracle software:
NT platform: insert Oracle CD, startup Oracle Universal Installer window, choose Uninstall. The next window will show all Oracle components installed. choose all and start unistall.

UNIX platform: go to Oracle CD mount location. run runInstaller and do the same thing as on NT. Need X window capability.

Hi Sam,
If it's not possible then ... it's not possible.
I'll uninstall Oracle "manually".

Thanx

jkstill,

I don't know about that. It's true, it took me some time to succeed (I could not install 8.0.5, but it worked with 8.1.7). Make sure the path to the rsp file is absolute not relative. The platform is Windows NT.

wren01,

I didn't want the user to interact with the Oracle GUI. Not on install and not on uninstall. Now, I'll have to do everything "manually". By manually I mean to delete dbs, Oracle installation folder and Registry entries from my program.
