I have downloaded Oracle 11g r2 64 bit install onto my windows system.
When i install, the install hangs after selecting the following
a) Create and configure a database
b) Desktop Class
After these, when I click on Next, the UI hangs.
Help will be appreciated.
I also faced the same issue during installation. Below is how it finally got resolved.
1. The windows user installing oracle should have administrator rights
2. There should be no space in the oracle installation directory.
3. Finally use the command prompt to run the setup.exe and explicitly give the fully qualified path of the JRE
setup.exe -jreLoc G:\Office\installations\Java\jdk1.6.0_43
Using above command, I could install 11g.
Also, I could successfully have 2 parallel installations (10g and 11g), though only one installation works at a time.
