I am a home user for Oracle. I want to install Oracle 9i R2 on Windows 2000 Professional Edition (Pentium III 666 MHz). My problem is that when I start installation after examining prerequisites, I get the error, "Cannot apply patch set to non oracle 9i R2 database", and installation aborts. I have removed the whole Oracle 8i installed from my PC and tried again, but the same error surfaces.
You're apparently trying to install a patch set as that's what will produce this error. Make sure you're using the 9.2.0 installation media either from CD ROM or from the CD image downloads via OTN.
