Hello,
For the latest version of the Oracle9i Database Enterprise Edition, we recommend downloading it for free from:
http://otn.oracle.com/software/products/oracle9i/content.html
Regards,
OTN 

Dont bother about updates of 8.1.7. Its outdataed now. Better to download 9i from the Oracle's site and upgrade ur database.
Good Luck

Oracle 9i dowload problems

I am trying to download Oracle9i Database Release 2 Enterprise/Standard/Personal Edition for Windows NT/2000/XP. The Oracle Universal installer cannot find Disk2 components. It is looking for them in
C:\Disk2\stage\/Components/(Note the way the forward and backward slashes are mixed!)instead of C:\Disk2\stage\Components\. Please advice. Thanks

System Requirements: Oracle version

I've been using ODP.NET for my .NET projects and I've really been looking forward to the release of this software. Everyone here in the forums seems to be saying that the production release requires Oracle 8.1.7 or higher. However, it's not until you actually try downloading the tool that I see that one of the requirements is...
"Access to an Oracle10g/9.2.x/9.0.x/8.1.7.4.1 database"
Am I correct in believing that I'm outta luck since my company is using the 8.1.7.2.0 version of Oracle?
Thanks! 
You will have to install a patch set. If your company has access to MetaLink, you can download it from there.

Does anyone know how I can download the Demo of OEM for 8i? I am particularly interested in checking out Oracle Expert.
Thank you.
Should be on technet here somewhere .. OEM 9i is bundled
as part of the 9i for Windows NT download. 
Is this downward compatible with 8i? I need a copy for 8i.

Upgrade DB version 9.2.0.1.0 to 9.2.0.3 or higher to install APEX

Hi,
I am starting to go through the install instuctions for APEX 2.0 (2.2 is what I actually desire)
I need to upgrade my development version at home to an Oracle database that is release 9.2.0.3 or higher.
Oracle HTML DB version 2.0 requires an Oracle database that is release 9.2.0.3 or higher.
My development version is:
     SQL> select * from v$version
     BANNER
     --------------------------------------------------------------
     Oracle9i Enterprise Edition Release 9.2.0.1.0
     PL/SQL Release 9.2.0.1.0 - Production
     CORE 9.2.0.1.0 Production
     TNS for 32-bit Windows: Version 9.2.0.1.0 - Production
     NLSRTL Version 9.2.0.1.0 - Production
Can I download a patch without belonging to Metalink?
If so where?
I wanted to spend my time on the APEX install and setup but am now side tracked to DB upgrade... :>)
Thanks, Bill 
I have Windows 2000 Version 5 with SP4 
Hello Bill,
According to the following - http://www.oracle.com/technology/support/patches.htm - you must have a MetaLink account to download patch sets.
"I need to upgrade my development version at home "You should check if this combination qualify you to use the free OTN downloadable products. ("All software downloads are free, and each comes with a Development License that allows you to use full versions of the products only while developing and prototyping your applications").
"I am starting to go through the install instuctions for APEX 2.0 (2.2 is what I actually desire)"If your target is ApEx 2.2 why are you starting with version 2.0? They have the same database version requirement.
Regards,
Arie. 
Hi Arie!
Yes, the free OTN would do it but don't I have to remove the existing DB first and clean the registry etc, etc, etc... you know how Oracle de-installs and installs are....
Actually I was going with 2.2 but I was using the install instructions from 2.0...
#### Anyone have a patch they could send me at
bill#allinclusivesolutions.net ?
If that isn't the proper thing to do then forget it.. but I'll just use the APEX site for now... no time to do the de-install/install thing..
Thanks for the reply.. Bill 
Hello Bill,
I'm not an expert DBA, but you can install two different versions of the DB on the same machine. You need to use a new Oracle_Home and a new SID for your new installation. If your machine is not strong enough to handle two instances, you can disable all services pertaining to the 9i instance. No need to handle the registry. This way you can easily go back (or back and forth) , just by manipulating the Win2K services.
Regards,
Arie. 
Thanks Arie.. Downloading 10g rel 2 now...
