Hi,

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 have gone over the prerequiste and they are ok.

    The problem I am facing is, after the step where i click on Desktop Install, the UI hangs.
    There are no errors in the logs in temp/install directory also.

    I have JDK 7 on my system. Is there a possibility it is causing issues??

    There is nothing in the log that tells what the issue is. The UI just hangs.

    Are there dependency on Microsoft .NET package or Windows 7 Service Pack

    Please help I am stuck

    Is there a possiblity that the zip files (1 and 2) doenloaded are corrupted??

    Unlikely that is the cause - you can check by using the md5 checksums of the zip files. I see that the path you are trying to install from has a directory with spaces in the name ("My DAP Downloads") - pl ensure that all directories that you are dealing with during the the install do not contain any spaces in the names.

    I have tried with installting from another folder (with no spaces), but still the problem persists.
    Is there a exe version of the installer, not the jave version

    This would indicate that there is an issue with the software/hardware/setup, or you are not following directons in the install guide. Pl see other discussions on this topic - https://forums.oracle.com/forums/search.jspa?threadID=&q=hang+AND+windows&objID=f64&dateRange=all&userID=&numResults=15

    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

    For example:

    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.
