Hi there.
which Oracle version is it correctly ?


By the way, the setup should start automatically depending on your Windows setup.

If you want to run 8.1.6 and 8.1.7 on one machine ( client software ), you must install 8.1.7 into a separate ORACLE_HOME.

For oracle 8i you need a patch to install on a PIV computer. You can find it on the oracle support site.
