comment How to resolve ORA-01031: insufficient priviledges error on Windows installation?
I also removed (commented out) SQLNET.AUTHENTICATION_SERVICES=(NTS) from the sqlnet.ora file. Same result, ORA-01031 error remains.

I deleted Oracle client directory and all the subdirectories. Then I removed client from the PATH variable. Then I deleted the client registry entry using regedit. After this, I rebooted the server. Now, when running splus / as sysdba, I get the same error.

No, there is no "deinstall" directory in the oracle client directory. There seems to be no way to deinstall oracle client?

Yes, but there is not this Universal Installer. I installed instant client from the installation media, and as the documentation says, instant clinet installation does not install oui.exe. But running oui.exe from the installation media does not give me a choice to uninstall. I'll have to check that deinstall directory.

Where I can find the Uninstall-option. When I follow this guide (docs.oracle.com/cd/B28359_01/install.111/b32007/deinstall.htm) it says to use oui.exe. Tried to use it from the unzipped client folder, but it does not give an option to choose 'uninstall'. How to uninstall the client?

Yes, UAC is on the lowest level, and I always run cmd as admin.

Yes, I know that now, but the question is how to solve the problem at hand.

No, I don't have that variable on my environmental variables list. Does it have to be? This worked before the client installation, and I did not have that variable at that time either.
