Hi, I've created a response file for the installation of the Oracle client on 2000 Pro but get the following error when I run it.

silentInstall2002-04-05_12-31-38-AM.log
No forced value specified for the variable ORACLE_HOME, associated with property ToLocation, in dialog File Locations.

I only need to install the Net8 components.  Can anyone suggest where I've gone wrong?

Net8.rsp is as follows:

"No forced value specified for the variable ORACLE_HOME, associated with property ToLocation, in dialog
File Locations."

Try initializing a variable like following above ORACLE_HOME

TOLOCATION="="C:\oracle\ora81"

Change
RESPONSEFILE_VERSION=1.7.0
to
RESPONSEFILE_VERSION="8.1.7"

Make sure string being quoted "......" properly

Sorry guys, still get the same result.  I also tried modifying the clientappuser.rsp file (also supplied in the RESPONSE folder) which is simpler and still contains the Net8 components but get the same error.  I must be making the same mistake but can't figure out what it is.

Using the net8.rsp file you posted above, I performed
serveral test installation successfully on Win2K pro.
That means the file itself is of no problem.

I pasted below what I've typed in the DOS prompt. You may
tried the same way. Basically three things, specify
-responsefile, -silent, and full_path_name of the file
[make sure the response file is there]

setup -responsefile d:\response\net8.rsp -silent

Good luck.

NB. Hope it works. If still not, I may sugguest you
    try it on a different machine.

Thanks, waynehzu you're a life saver.  I didn't specify the path to the .rsp as it was in the same directory as setup.exe.  Knew it had to be something simple :)  

I really appreciate your efforts.

All the best,
Rigathor.
