Oracle 10g client won't install on Windows 2000 sp4 server

I am trying to install the 10.2.0.1 client on a Windows 2000 server.  When I run the setup.exe, a DOS window opens then closes but the Oracle installer welcome doesn't show up.  When I look in the task manager, the javaw.exe is running, but no welcome screen.

Anyone have any ideas?

you probably have another version of oracle or some previously installed components.
There was problem with installer in 2000 and XP.
Use latest installer from oracle.

I used the same client installer on 2 xp computers and it ran fine.

I just used the installer on a windows 2000 pro and it worked fine.  I am pretty sure we never had any Oracle software installed on the server that I can't get the installer to run on.

There are no oracle install logs that I have found.  The Oracle screen never even shows up.  I didn't see anything in the event logs.

It should be checked by the 10.x OUI, but there were issues in the past when the screen resolution was to low (800x600?) and only 256 colors were available.

In any case there should be some logfiles in the OUI program folder.

I had a guy tell me that I needed to use this command line to get it to work on a Windows 2000 sp4 server:

install\setup.exe -J-Dsun.java2d.noddraw=true

 
That solved the problem.
