  1. Nice article. I am attempting to install onto Windows 7 OS and am encountering the following error when attempting to set the Middleware Home Directory to C:\Oracle\Middleware

    “the local BEA product registry is corrupted. Please select another Middlware Home or contact Oracle Support”

    Any thoughts regarding best place to resolve this in Windows Registry using the Registry Editor regedit.exe?

    I have Registry Keys for Oracle, but nothing for BEA


    Any help or guidance is appreciated.

    • Hello Brian,

      I would suggest to deinstall and to start a fresh install as admin user. If you provide more details about the install I will be glad to look at it and feedback. Do you have another Oracle products installed? As far as the registry is concerned try not to mess with another Oracle installed product.

      • Thank you for the reply!

        I do not have any other Oracle products installed, and am basically attempting to create a new Oracle\Middleware\ Home Directory.

        I did attempt to run through the deinstall via


        But it did not work. So I proceeded with the following steps:

        1.) CLICK START and RUN regedit.exe

        2.) Delete the registry entries for all Oracle Products in the following part of the Registry

        3.) Delete any references to Oracle Windows Services in the following part of the Registry
        – HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE/SYSTEM/CurrentControlSet/Services/Ora*

        4.) REBOOT MACHINE

        5.) Verify “Oracle” Windows Services have been removed

        6.) Delete the following Directory C:\MyApps\Oracle

        7.) Delete the following Directory C:\Program Files\Oracle

        8.) Delete the contents the following Directory C:\temp

        9.) Empty Recycle Bin

        After cleaning up everything, I attempted to run the Windows Installer “wls1033_win32.exe” and still encounter the same error message

        “the local BEA product registry is corrupted. Please select another Middleware Home or contact Oracle support”

        At this point I am not really sure how to proceed, as I do not have any Oracle Products installed, I have cleaned out my Registry, and I do not have an Oracle\Middleware Home.

        Any additional ideas\suggestions would be appreciated.

      • Hello Brian,

        What you are doing is quite logical. Apparently something is messed up. I believe it is matter of cleaning the registry completely and running install and deinstall as administrator. I just install it again on Vista and went just fine.

        Can you make sure that:
        1. installation and deinstrall are run as administrator
        2. c:\Oracle\Middleware\utils\uninstall\uninstall.exe is used to deinstall instead of the \Oracle\Middleware\database\product\11.2.0\dbhome_1\deinstall\deinstall.bat or a link of the startup on Windows.
        3. Make sure registry is cleared completely. Preferably using uninstall specified above. In worst case use regedit and remove all items for Oracle. Focus if there are other registry entries apart from the one you remove in point 2 and 3 in your plan.

  3. Which version of weblogic did you load. Did you load the 32 or 64 bitr program. I am trying to load a 64 bit version.

    • Hello,

      I used the 32 bit JVM version. Works fine on 64bit Windows Vista & Windows 7.



      Comment by gjilevski | November 18, 2010 | Reply

      • So under windows 7 64 bit would you suggest loading the 32 bit version or should I load the 64 bit version of weblogic?

        Comment by Wally | November 18, 2010

      • Hello,

        What kind of an application will you deploy 32bit or 64bit? Does the application require explicitly 32bit or 64bit Weblogic installation?

        The pros of 64bit is overcoming the 2GB limitation.



        Comment by gjilevski | November 18, 2010

      • I typed in the following command

        “c:\program files\java\jdk1.6.0.22\bin\java -jar c:\temp\wls1032_generic\installer.jar

    • Hi,

      Did you by any chance have a *.jar or C.cmd extension? *.jar *cmd can also be used for installing OWLS.

      Try downloading from here

      Use either

      1. Oracle WebLogic Server 11gR1 (10.3.3) + Coherence + OEPE – Package Installer
      Oracle WebLogic Server 11gR1 (10.3.3) + Coherence – Package Installer
      2. Generic: 921 MB wls_1033_generic.jar



      For downloading have a look at the readme.txt and use configure.cmd command

  16. If you are required reinstalling the Windows 7 edition of Microsoft but unable to trace windows key then you can easily trace it on the backside of your PC or underside, in the case of laptop. Windows 7 key is generally sited on a yellow decal. Sometimes, the decal will be sited within the CD coat of the software product, or you can also trace it in the manual of particular software. If you find yourself unable to trace the product key, it means you have lost the license of the valuable Windows 7 software. One may also mislay a great contract of time annoying to track the product key down, or probing various PC mediums for a way out.*
