There is a known problem/bug with trying to install 8.1.7 on W2K sp 3 on a Pentium 4 where the installer just doesn't want to start up due to some problem with an incompatible JIT compiler (symcjit.dll). This can be gotten around as follows:
- Copy your CD
Oracle8i Client Release 3 (8.1.7) for Microsoft Windows 95/98/2000/NT Part #: A87675-01to your hard disk (e.g. to C:\oracle\Oraclient8.1.7)
- Rename the file
C:\oracle\Oraclient8.1.7\stage\Components\oracle.swd.jre\ 220.127.116.11\1\DataFiles\Expanded\jre\win32\bin\symcjit.dllto (e.g.) symcjit.dll.ori
- Disable "Read Only" for C:\oracle\Oraclient8.1.7\install\oraparam.ini and edit the file like this:
[Oracle] ...this original line:
JRE_MEMORY_OPTIONS=-nojit -ms16m -mx32mSave the file a set "Read Only".
- Run Oracle Universal Installer
