    Hi,

    I installed Oracle 11g on windows 7 and now trying to uninstall it.

    When uninstalling from Oracle Universal Installer, it gives a message saying
    "Please run the command 'C:\...\product\11.2.0\dbhome_1/deinstall/deinstall' to deinstall this Oracle home."

    And when I run deinstall from above said directory, here is the output :


    Code (SQL):

    Un-Installing oracle is always been very tough time for me either by using Oracle Universal Installer still there are some registers in your system registry that hold hold your Oracle installation values, i always remove them manually by finding them in my system registry......

    Thank you Sadiq for the link,
    But as you can see the log on my system is showing some error and is not proceeding with what it is suppose to do.

    I am running the command from admin login, so dont think it is really some access issue.

    i think that you can fix these error while playing with your system registry, there are some certain registers that causes these errors just change the value of thoese regirters if required then delete them...

    Pointers to such registry entries will be highly appreciated.
    I dont want to mess up installation of other Oracle products such as SQLDeveloper, Workflow Builder and Jdeveloper.
    I use these tools to connect to other DBs.

    see when you log on your system there are some certain errors that you got before loading explorer.exe, just visit your event logand see why these errors occurs from there you will get the actual informaiton aboout the cause of error

    When I said "log on my system", I meant the log output of deinstall command run in my system which I posted in my original post and not explorer.exe.
