I have to remove Oracle 10g XE from my PC.

It turned out to be far more complicated than I had thought: I couldn't find any suitable software products to remove from 'Add or Remove Programs'. I then started looking on the Internet and came across two options, which were a dead end for me:

  1. Via the Universal Installer - I couldn't find such thing; can anyone help me figure out where should it be?

  2. Following guides like this - should I really be manually removing keys from the registry? In 2011?

The Universal Installer should be listed in your Start Menu unde: All Programs > Oracle > Oracle Installation Productions, or as setup.exe in a location similar to this (this is from 'real' Oracle rather than XE, but I believe this should get you close):

C:\oracle\product\10.2.0\client_1\oui\bin\setup.exe

Hi, thank you, I already searched those locations - no sign of setup.exe... I also searched the C:\oracle... directories for all *.exe files and I couldn't find any setup.exe. – karla Aug 16 '11 at 12:47

Interesting. According to download.oracle.com/docs/cd/B25329_01/doc/install.102/b25143/…, I was wrong and XE should actually be in the Add/Remove Programs control panel applet. – StevenV Aug 16 '11 at 12:51

I know.. I've been using oracle 10g XE with Win XP and it used to be in Add/Remove Programs, but now with WIN 7 it is not there.. – karla Aug 16 '11 at 12:54
