How to completely uninstall Oracle 10g?

  1. How to completely uninstall Oracle 10g?

    Hi,
    I need to move Orcl 10g installation on other local disc (under win XP
    prof). As WinXP doesn't offer the change/remove possibility in ctrl
    panels>add/remove programs for Orcl, I used Oracle universal installer
    to remove all components listed there. Anyway, Orcl homes remained
    there on the disc and in ctrl panels>admin tools>services there is
    OracleOraDb10g_home1TNSListener with automatic StartUp type.

    How to get rid of everything remaining? Shut down the service and
    delete manually?

    thanks
    Martin

    It has ever been thus. The one thing the Universal Installer won't uninstall
    is itself. Or anything vaguely related to itself.

    It is thus a question of firing up regedit and searching for any occurrence
    of the word 'oracle' and its siblings (I tend to search for 'ora'). And then
    manually deleting the swines.

    And then you begin to realise the advantage of Ghosting a system before an
    install. Or even of installing only onto virtual VM machines.

    The OUI is virus-like in what it does to Windows and in one's inability to
    remove it easily, IMHO.

    I too search for "ora" in the registry but use some judgment. You'll pull up
    keys and data for "Eudora", "storage", etc. You'll also pull up ODBC
    drivers for Oracle from Microsoft which you probably want to leave in place.
