Posted under Coding, Databases, Software by ifoundafix

The other day while browsing the Internet, I Found A Fix for a recent problem I was having. The issue is described as follows;

The solution and description to this error is set out below;

When trying to install Oracle 6i Forms and reports, I receive the error ‘Orainst.exe has encountered a problem, the information you were working on might be lost’.


It also says that the file ‘oibknd32.dll2 is the cause. 


The solution is as follows;

1. Right-Click on setup.exe.
2. Select ‘properties’.
3. Click on the compatibility tab.
4. Tick the box for ‘run this program in compatibility mode for:’ and choose Windows 2000 (or relevant).


I Hope you too have found a fix!!
