Recreated the same directory structure ( zip or network folder between machines ) copied the binaries ( no application running ) and after that extracted the oracle tree of the windows registry and imported into the target host Of course, a lot of time ago. From 9i I usually work with unix servers and my desktop is only linux, don't know how windows as evolved this years Regards D.
