    Hi Friends,

    I have Windows 7 32-bit. When i am trying to install Oracle 10g. It's giving me error.. I can not do any things further.
    The SID you have specified already exists on this machine. Please specify a different SID.. I already install one time and than uninstall. So when i am doing second time it's shown error.. How to delete this SID from Machine?

    Thanks.

    Try to remove it from registry editor. May be they remain there in that registry. If you once do that you can install it without that error.

    Click on start --> type run and select it. and in that type regedit. and in that select HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE and expand it. In that select SOFTWARE and expand it and find any oracle exists or not. If you find any like that then remove it and try to install it.

    Hi,

    I am also trying to install oracle 10g. First time I installed. When I tried installing it again it's showing the message as "The SID you have specified is already exists on this machine. Please specify a different SID". I followed the steps mentioned as deleting the oracle from registry editor. But still I am unable to install. Kindly help me out to resolve this. Your help will be much valid.

    Thanks in advance

    Open your File Manager. Check directory Program Files...you'll most likely see an Oracle directory...if you do...whack it as well.
