Removing Oracle on Windows when the Installer gives up
Date: June 6th, 2007 by SiD3WiNDR

Below services post was needed for the following:

I had a machine with Oracle 9 installed, and wanted to uninstall it. The uninstlaler installed on disk however told me that I needed a newer installer to remove the software (old installer used for base, then newer installer on CD used for patches/upgrades, and the new installer not installed on the harddisk). So this is what I learned from a colleague who used to work at Oracle:

  • Stop all oracle services
  • Remove all oracle services
  • Delete c:\oracle
  • Delete c:\documents and settings\all users\start menu\oracle*
  • Delete c:\program files\oracle
  • Start regedit and delete HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Oracle

Done!

Apparently at Oracle the same method is used quite often. 🙂
