            Pl post the complete error message. Assuming you are using a certified OS version, did you unzip both files into the same directory ?

              Hi;

              1. Please mention your win7 version. Home version is not certified.
              2. Please be sure your setup is not corrupted and uninstall both zip to single file.
              3. Please review my blog:

                Hi Ripendra,

                Please unzip both the zip files into a single folder.

                (Do not unzip the 2 zip files into individual folders.)

                Regards,
                BT

                  Hi,

                  I also have trouble installing the Oracle 11gR2 on my laptop using windows 7 home premium 64bit. I was able to download the "win64_11gR2_database_1of2" and "win64_11gR2_database_1of2" and extracted them to the same directory. However, when it runs at 62% progress it shows the error message that reads "Error in moving file C:\oracle\product\11.2.0\dbhome_1\bin\oralbac11.dll to C:\oracle\product\11.2.0\dbhome_1\bin\oralbac11.dll.dbl"

                  Please help I have spent several days just trying to install the database unsuccessfully.

                  Thanks a lot

                    "home premium"

                    Oracle does not certify it's products to run on "home" editions of Windows.

                        Thanks Srini,

                        After checking the link, I was able to install it but there were some error messages.
                        I have another problem log in the SQL PLUS. When I open the SQL PLUS window, it asked for Username and after I typed "sys" or "system" and hit Enter; it was prompted for password, however, it did not let me type in any word; and after I hit Enter again, the error message " ORA-12560: TNS:protocol adapter error" appeared

                        Any hints would be apprecieted, thanks.

                          It wasn't preventing you from typing a password, it just wasn't echoing your keystrokes back to the screen. This is a security security feature common to most software, not just oracle. Either when asking for a password, either echo back a 'masking' character like '*' or don't echo anything. It's so common, I'm surprised you seem to have never seen it before.

                          So after entering your password ... the 12560 probably comes from
                          1- the fact you didn't have the environment variable ORACLE_SID set, so sqlplus didn' know the name of the instance/process you wanted to connect to, or
                          2 - the windows service for the database was not started.

                          Those two possibilities account for 99.99999 pct of ora-12560 on Windows installations.

                            Pl confirm the OS version you are using. If you are continuing to use Windows Home version, you will have to troubleshoot on your own.

                                  I am aware that many different folks have tried & failed to install & run Oracle DB on Windows 7 Home.

                                  No Oracle product is supported on any Windows Home edition.

                                  You could install VirtualBox on Windows 7 then run guest OS inside the VM which supports Oracle DB
