Peter,

Just tested this with windows 7 and there windows explorer is throwing the 
error, but from the command line it worked.

I've tried creating a directory with a leading dot in windows and got a Rename 
Error 'You must type a file name'. Just a wild stab here - could it be that 
you've got the *NIX version of the patch? A leading dot on a filename or 
directory  name will hide that item.

This might easily be due to the UAC (User Access Control is by default "on" on 
Win2K8), try disabling it then try to run the patch? (that's at least what I 
had to do back in April to patch one Win2K8 system; although I logged on as 
local Administrator patching process could not create any directories until 
I've disabled the UAC)

   We are having a problem installing the July CPU on Windows 2008 servers.  
The problem is that OPatch wants to create a directory that starts with a 
period (.) and Windows won't let it.  I've opened an SR with Oracle and they're 
answer is that it's our issue with the way the servers are set up.  Our SAs say 
it's Oracles problem and they aren't changing  anything.  It seems to be a 
standoff and I'm caught in the middle. 

   We didn't have the problem with Windows 2003 servers.

   My questions are: 1) Has anyone successfully installed this CPU on a Windows 
2008 server?  2) If so, did you have to do anything specific to get it to run?
