What a crazy error! I’ve installed this millions of times and I had no idea why I’m getting this error now. I really don’t want to go through this problem since I don’t know where to head at all. Let me google it for you really did help!

Thanks to Guillaume again!!!

Modified a bit of his code and everything worked fine! I don’t even want to understand why this is happening. If you do, please visit Guillaume’s blog here! Remember to thank him! I’ll do that now!!! LOL! He was right, I had a whole bunch of EPM… Talk about incompatible Oracle stuff!

Create a startup.bat on the desktop with the following:

set PATH=C:\ProgramData\Oracle\Java\javapath;%SystemRoot%\system32;%SystemRoot%;%SystemRoot%\System32\Wbem
call “C:\Oracle\Middleware\Oracle_Home\user_projects\domains\bi\bitools\bin\start.cmd”

Up and running! Thanks Bruv!
