This article describes known and possibly blocking issues and their solution for the initial release of GeoMedia Smart Client 2018 (version 188.8.131.52). The list will be ordered by date when the issue has been found.
Oracle metadata upgrade scripts have incorrect table names
Oracle upgrade scripts for GMSC metadata have incorrect table and field names. The database upgrade will therefore fail to complete.
Please use the attached Oracle_UpdateModel_16.5.0.zip script to manually upgrade Oracle metadata.
Configuration Wizard depends on the x64 version of Oracle 12c ODAC (or higher)
The Configuration Wizard will not be started after GMSC installation and the log.txt file at the Wizard directory will contain the following error:

This error is related to an issue at the Configuration Wizard Framework which tries to load all DLLs & dependendent assemblies and will appear on any installation where ODAC is missing (even if you don't plan to use Oracle).
Although Oracle 12c ODAC or higher (64-bit) is listed in installation prerequisites, this dependency will be likely removed at the next setup. In the meantime, please install the required Oracle libraries and re-run the Configuration Wizard.
Installation delivered on USB dongles or CD/DVDs with non-empty labels
If the setup will be executed from a USB dongle or CD/DVD where the label is not empty, then the following error happens while installing the files:
Copy the setup to local hard drive or change the label of the USB dongle so that it is empty. In case of CD/DVDs - don’t define a label when creating installation media, or copy the installation to local hard drive.
