I've been attempting to install the Oracle Client 9.1, but getting constant "Could not initialize the Java virtual machine.  Program will exit!" error.  I've been successful with installing it on several machines using Java version 6.22.  The workstation I've been attempting to install was using 6.22,  I upgraded it to 7.51 and still seeing the same error.  Any help would be much appreciated.

Have you tried uninstalling ALL JAVA completely, and restarting the computer, and then re-installing your chosen compatible version of JAVA again.

Yes I have.  I uninstalled it via the Add/Remove Programs.  Restarted it and reinstalled 6.22.  Same as with 7.51.

Have you tested JAVA is working correctly by visiting the Java Test Pages at java.com.

also check your JAVA Paths are correct to the bin locations.

compare paths and environments against working machines.

Hi Andrew, we found the issue.  Apparently, there was another program "holding on" to Java.  After I uninstalled that program, I was able to install the Oracle Client.  Thank you for your suggestions.
