Using Oracle Universal Installer to install Oracle with Pro*C

Learn how to install Oracle with Pro*C using Oracle Universal Installer without reinstalling Oracle in this expert tip.

We originally installed Oracle 9i on an AIX box, where we also installed our application. However, we now want Oracle installed with Pro*C. So is there any patch available to just install the Pro*C option with Oracle, or do we need to reinstall Oracle and select the Pro*C option during installation? We cannot risk reinstalling Oracle, as it may affect our front-end application, so please let me know if any other option is available.
There is an option. Fire up the Oracle Universal Installer (OUI) from your distribution media and choose a Custom Install. Find the Pro*C precompiler option and let the OUI do the rest. It will not remove anything that is already installed.
