problem while installing oracle 9i personal i

May 29, 2011 at 20:35:52
Specs: Windows 7
i am using Windows 7 for my PC and i already have Oracle 6i in my PC. But somehow when i try to install Oracle 9i (personal) it gave me with an error msg :

"Oracle 9i Database cannot be installed into an existing 7x or 8.0x ORACLE_HOME."

But when i try to install Oracle 9i Client into another PC (Windows 7) which do not have any other previous version of Oracle, it can run smoothly. i try to install on the same PC Oracle 9i (personal) but it just loading "in progress". Nothing happen after that. i've been waiting for the installing for more than 3 hours.

With the explanation above, does it happen because of oracle is not compatible with Windows 7 or it has any other reason?

Really need your help...

thanks.

You may have to uninstall the previous versions of Oracle before you install the new version.
