AWS also offers commandline utilities to manage the instances, Beanstalk environments, RDS instances, Route53 DNS settings and more.

The commandline tools can be downloaded from the AWS downloads section – http://aws.amazon.com/developertools/351/
Instructions on how to configure those tools successfully on to you local system can be found in readme.txt from the downloaded zip file.

During the Oracle Installation process, any installation/sytem error  or sudden power failures causes Incomplete Installation. The Operating System does not allows us to either reinstall the Oracle product or uninstall the existing Oracle components. Here is a procedure to Uninstall all the Oracle components manually, when Installation Failure occurs.

Uninstall all Oracle components

  1.  Run regedit.exe and delete the HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE/SOFTWARE/ORACLE key. This contains registry entries for    all     Oracle products.
  2. Delete any references to Oracle services left behind in the following part of the registry:HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE/SYSTEM/CurrentControlSet/Services/Ora*
  3. It should be pretty obvious which ones relate to Oracle.
  4. Reboot your machine.
  5. Delete the “C:\Oracle” directory, or whatever directory is your ORACLE_BASE.
  6. Delete the “C:\Program Files\Oracle” directory.
  7. Empty the contents of your “c:\temp” directory.
  8. Empty your recycle bin.

At this point your machine will be as clean of Oracle components as it can be without a complete OS reinstall.

Remember, manually editing your registry can be very destructive and force an OS reinstall so only do it as a last resort else before making any changes in REGISTRY export its settings so that any they can be imported if any errors occur.

I am also attaching the PDF file which explains the step by step procedure to Uninstall all Oracle products from Windows

Uninstalling all Oracle products from Windows systems

This fellow all of a sudden took a small box containing  Gulal(color powder)  added to water to it, and his hands were in pink color, and tried to applied to me. As i was escaping he filled the bottle with color water and poured on me,

Oh god! i was totally in holi gulal color, my favourite blue t-shirt was in pink color now.  It was a suprise Holi and i had no color to apply to that fellow.

But later taken from him and applied to him too. We then came to home, and called my bro Arun from outside the gate. He came as usual to checkout, and we applied color on his face too.  He was also colorful now. We shoot some picz of each other and then wished Mr. Harry once again a happy holi and he left.
