An Oracle Access Manager (OAM) 10g patch has been downloaded and unzipped in a Windows environment. On running the "patchinst" command from the patch's binary_parameter directory, a Windows "Application Error" popup appears, and an entry is written to the Windows Event log (System). This can occur immediately on entering the "patchinst" command, or after entering a directory name when prompted.

The text of the error message is not be the same in all environments, but known examples include:

Application popup: patchinst.exe - Application Error : The application failed to initialize properly (0xc0000022). Click OK to terminate the application.
