Oracle XE does not install as Domain User

820974Dec 3 2010 — edited Dec 8 2010

I work for Oracle support for Primavera applications. Our software uses Oracle XE to install as a standalone db engine. I have a customer who when goes through the install as a domain user that is under the local admin group our Software fails at creating the databases. It works without any issue if logged in as a local user that is a local admin. It had been determined the XE installation did not fully complete and there were files missing. An attempt was then made to install XE manually, but the same thing occurred. Unable to connect to db home page or connect via sqlplus but the services were installed and started, but not everything was being installed.

Since it installed fine as a local user, is the only possibility causing this is some sort of group policy on the domain accounts (as this happens for all users within that group and happens on all machines, they have windows 7 and XP machines)? Or is there something else that could be a factor that could be not allowing the installation to fully complete?

Thank you!
