Since a few weeks/months the silent option is no longer working for us on several systems (Windows 10, 20H2).
The command line used is:
C:\Oracle\product\setup.exe -silent -nowait -ignorePrereqFailure -skipPrereqs -waitForCompletion -force "oracle.install.option=.... etc etc" (We do not use a responsefile)
The installer just quits after a while, the last message given is where the log of the installation is en de message "PersistEnv". The services "OracleOraDB18Home1TNSListener" (running) and "OracleRemExecServiceV2" (disabled but running, is removed when stopped) and several ORA user groups are made.
When I remove the -Silent it works fine, except you get the GUI and you need to press next etc.
The only clue I have is an eventlog entry in the Application log (event ID 1000).
Faulting application name: java.exe, version: 8.0.1710.11, time stamp: 0x5abc22fc
Faulting module name: orasrvm18.dll, version: 220.127.116.11, time stamp: 0x5b6b5c35
Exception code: 0xc0000005
Fault offset: 0x000000000000ffa0
Faulting process id: 0x2ea4
Faulting application start time: 0x01d8015b8f259525
Faulting application path: C:\Oracle\product\jdk\jre\bin\java.exe
Faulting module path: C:\Oracle\product\oui\lib\win64\orasrvm18.dll
The "installActions*.log stops with "INFO: Calling Action WindowsActionLib18.104.22.168.0 SetACLForUser" while logs of installations that are succesfull continue with some more "INFO: Calling Action WindowsActionLib22.214.171.124.0 SetACLForUser" entries.
We are not sure since when this started. We know for sure that it worked in October, but we noticed it mid December. Searching for the event entry did not result in anything usefull.
