Uninstalling Oracle Completely. How to
Posted on 2006-11-12
I want to deinstall oracle.
I selected Oracle Universal Installer, it shows all the products installed
|+Oracle 8i Client
| |+Net8 Client
| |+Oracle Protocol Support
|+Oracle Java Products
|+Oracle Enterprise Manager Products
On each level there are checkboxes for sub products, like +Net8 Products has
subcomponents like Net8 Client and Oracle Protocol Support
Now my problem is that when i select the checkbox on +Net8 products, it's sub
subcomponents like Net8 Client and Oracle Protocol Support do not get selected
Q1.Now when i want to deinstall Oracle completely, will i have select all checkboxes
induvidually or is it ok to select only the first level components.(Selecting all
entries is a long and tedious process).
Q2. Even after complete deinstall of oracle, oracle keeps entries in the windows
registry. I have to manually delete all oracle entries to make the system clean
of oracle completely, Is that ok?
I want to clean install oracle because i want to install Oracle designer.
Oracle designer does not install on a system that already has oracle installed on it.
However, it installs well on a fresh system. So Oracle Designer should be the
first oracle product installed on a fresh pc.
