I am trying to install Oracle 8i but during installation it found an error of jrew.exe file. Oracle 8i was not installed on my computer. I try to install the Oracle product from the CD. So what can I do to install this product?

Oracle 8.1 is not supported on Windows 7. It was never intended to be used on Windows 7. You may use a virtualization software like VirtualBox or VMware.

Oracle 8i went EOL in 2006. You might want to look at 10g Express or 11g for your needs.
