A search of oraInventory/Contents revealed :

cd $ORACLE_HOME/oraInventory/Contents
strings * |grep production


This should be actually showing


I checked the logs in $ORACLE_HOME/appsutil/log/$CONTEXT_NAME directory but did not find any errors.

This happens usually when an environment is cloned. To fix this :

(1) /product/oraInventory
Modify the comps.xml in ContentsXML and inventory.xml to refer to the correct env.

(2) Modify $ORACLE_HOME/inventory/ContentsXML/comps.xml and inventory.xml to refer to the correct env.

(3) After steps 1 and 2, run "relink client_sharedlib" command.

(4) Run your "runInstaller" without any issues.
