Last updated on APRIL 29, 2016

Applies to:

Oracle API Gateway - Version 11.1.2 and later
Information in this document applies to any platform.


When attempting to install Oracle API Gateway, an error is displayed by the installer as follows:

This error can occur when installing the version as well, except the directory structure will be different, as OAG- will be referenced instead of OAG- as shown here.
