    Using Windows XP Professional, SP2 with IE 7.0 SP2

    I am installing Oracle Developer Suite 10g V. During the
    process, it shows an Error Message "The environment setting for the path on
    this machine is too long. The path may not be longer than 1023 characters in
    length. Please change the environment setting for the path to a value that is
    less than 1023 characters in length".

    I checked the My computer->Properties->Advanced->Environment Variable>Path
    (From System Variable) -> Values

    The value (Path) looks like this below. The word count shows 1015 words. How
    to complete my 10g installation process? If I choose cancel, this will not
    install the component. Please help.

    This is a Windows Media Center group, this question doesn't seem to have
    anything to do with Media Center.

    My thought would be to contact Oracle, as it would seem their setup program
    is creating the path name that is too long.
