How change MSI & Properties Win. Trying a silent Oracle install I keep getting error claiming I'm installing in an occupied location. This location has been deleted everywhere including the registry.

My laptop with Windows Vista:

Log says "MSI ...Property Change: Its current value is 'c:\old_path' Its new value: 'c:\new_path'."  It still thinks I'm trying to load on the old_path.  I've search the registry and took out all oracle references.  I see information about MSI and properties but not sure how to access and change.

message: Oracle (new_path) cannot be installed ion the same location as oracle (old_path)

I assume I should change INSTALLDIR but not sure where it is and how to get to it.  Are all the in hidden files.  I'm logged in a Admin.
