Oracle 11gR2 and Windows 8

Yes I know it's not officially supported...

...but having acknowledged that, has anyone tried? I was able to install it and create a DB but I can't get the listener to start (it won't create the service either), just get a TNS-12560 on LSNRCTL START. I am logged into Windows as an admin level user.

    not any more, now 11gR2 is officially supported on Win 8.

    Oracle Database for 32-bit Windows is supported on the following operating systems:
    Windows Server 2008 - Standard, Enterprise, Datacenter, Web, and Foundation editions. The Server Core option is not supported.

    Ref : http://docs.oracle.com/cd/E11882_01/install.112/e24281/toc.htm#BGBEEBAD

    regarding error : make sure you have set oracle sid and oracle home correctly, and services are started on services.msc

    ORACLE_SID has no bearing on the listener. ORACLE_HOME does.

    Is WIN8 the same as Windows Server 2008?
    I don't think WIN8 has been officially released yet.

    Yes, I mean Windows Server 2008.

    Windows 8 is different OS from Windows Server 2008!

    I am logged into Windows as an admin level user.
    you do realize that you still have to explicitly start programs with elevated privileges (run as admin)
    start command line with administrator privileges..

    btw yes I tried, installed 11gR2 (11.2.0.3) successfully on both Windows 8 and Windows Server 2012 without any issues

    Hi;

    ...but having acknowledged that, has anyone tried? I was able to install it and create a DB but I can't get the listener to start (it won't create the service either), just get a TNS-12560 on LSNRCTL START. I am logged into Windows as an admin level user.
    just wonder why you are trying to make installation on unsupported version?

    Regard
