OiilNativeException is thrown, While Installing Older Oracle products (Windows)

 

Recently we were forced to re-install Oracle Developer suite 10g (10.1.2.0.2) and came across a peculiar error and the installation log out file had the following entries

OiilNativeException is thrown

and by the end of install log file we were able to see that, the installation was terminated while trying to setup LD_LIBRARY_PATH environment variable

oracleHomes = C:\orant,D:\DevSuiteHome_1,D:\Oracle\Middleware\oracle_common,D:\oracle\product\10.2.0\db_1,D:\WLS\Middleware\oracle_common,D:\Weblogic\Middleware\oracle_common,D:\WebLogic\Middleware\Oracle_FRHome1,D:\DevSuiteHome_2,

name = LD_LIBRARY_PATH

Obvious, we had an installation for Oracle Weblogic Server 10.3.6 and Oracle developer suite 11g which were done much later stages, and the Environment was setup with a static entry for LD_LIBRARY_PATH=D:\WebLogic\Middleware\Oracle_FRHome1\lib;D:\instantclient32

During the installation time, the installer was trying to setup the LD_LIBRARY_PATH variable for sourcing the required files/other components, and failing to setup the same was causing an unexpected error and thus the entire installation failing without producing any specific error within the log file, other than the .out file stating an exception towards “OiilNativeException “

Workaround

Copy the LD_LIBRARY_PATH value to a text file and delete the environment variable after stopping Weblogic services.

Restart the computer and try to install your product. This should solve the dreaded issues with installation.

Tested environment: Windows 8 64Bit Professional edition running Oracle database 10g 10.2.0.3, Oracle weblogic server 10.3.6, Oracle developer suite 11g
