I am currently trying to install the Oracle 9i client on a Windows 95  machine. I keep getting the following error, before the products.jar even loads.

"Invalid staging area. There are no top level components for Winodws 95. Windows Me available for installation in this staging area."

has anyone come accross this before....is it a 95 issue, and if so is there a way around.

okay, the error message seems to be the same as mine, but i dont think the solution would apply to me. As in my case, i am already trying to run the products.jar in the stage directory.

my source is D:\stage\products.jar

so its loading it from the CD....

well that would be great, but im working in a pharma corperation at the moment, and changing something like that at the last minute is just not possible....would mean a whole load of documentation problems.

I have found out that there is not a work around....its just that oracle 9i does not support windows 95, madness that there is not something there for it.

maybe you can download the 8i client from the oracle site,after  you install the 8i client ,you must change the jdbc driver for 9i, i think it  can work well!
