There was a problem opening the Staging Area. Please make sure the Source you have specified is valid.I have tried installing from the CD drive as well as hard disk, but still I get the same error.
The source should be a directory path ending with the file products.jar. Make sure that the products.jar file exists.
You should also consider installing at least version 9i (9.2.0) or maybe 10g since 8.1.6 has been desupported for a very long time. Even 8.1.7 would be a better choice since it was supported up until last year.
