  • Yes! We can run different versions of Oracle on the same machine provided that Oracle_base_directory is same for both the versions.

    Oracle_base_directory is the directory where oracle is installed like C:\oracle or D:\orant
    Under the Base directory Oracle home directories are differentiated like

    C:\oracle\oracle8
    C:\oracle\oracle9
    In short you can have different versions installed on the same machine if they are installed in the same directory..

     try and post your result.
