RE: OER 7451 in Load Indicator : Error Code = OSD-04500: illegal option specified

OK Harel sent me
"Larry,
MOS says it's caused when you install 32bit Oracle on 64bit Windows.
This isn't supported.

"On ML I found one document and it was EMPTY."
You were probably using Firefox 3.6. There is a bug with MOS and FF3.6
that causes notes to open up empty, you should open them in a new
window/tab.

Harel Safra"
 
That's right.   I switched to IE and got the doc
 
SELECT DISTINCT ADDRESS FROM V$SQL WHERE ROWNUM<2;
ADDRESS
----------------
0000000386D3E060  64 bit
 
If the address is 16 characters long, it is 64 bit.   If it is 32 bit
you will get an 8 character address.
 
SQL> SELECT DISTINCT ADDRESS FROM V$SQL WHERE ROWNUM<2;
 
ADDRESS
--------
A7B7F790  32 bit
 
    So a mis-match.  I'll have to see what the want to do
 
    Thanks Harel,
    Larry

     Just wondering if you ever saw anything like this?  
    We just got this Express Edition 10.2.0.1.0 DB turned over  to us
this week.
             Windows Server 2008 R2 Standard

OER 7451 in Load Indicator : Error Code = OSD-04500: illegal option

O/S-Error: (OS 1) Incorrect function. !  
 
    Happens about every 10 seconds. 
 
$ oerr ora 7451
 
07451, 00000, "slskstat: unable to obtain load information."
// *Cause: kstat library returned an error. Possible OS failure //
*Action: Check result code in sercose[0] for more information.
 
We're getting about 60K of errors/hour on the XE QA database.
Been happening since they installed DB in February. 

       googled this and got replies in Russian, Korean, Chinese, etc,
but none made much sense.
Even after translation. On ML I found one document and it was EMPTY.
 
Thanks
Larry
