I just got Win 8 PC x64 bit .
I want to install Oracle DB on it just for learning and personal use .
I looked around and found Oracle 11g Express can be used for free for my use but it doesn't seem to have x64 bit version .
Can somebody help me point to the right Oracle to download and use for learning purpose .
Thanks in Advance .
no existing Oracle version is certified to run on Windows 8.
Downgrade to supported OS
Thanks for the reply .
just wondering what are the options I have in this case ?
if I make it Dual OS ( Win 8 and Linux ) , can then I use Linux to install Oracle ?
Thanks very much .
One possible solution is to install VirtualBox on Windows 8 & then run a supported OS inside a VM.
Oracle has preconfigured VM which already has Oracle DB installed on the VM; which can be obtained from http://otn.oracle.com
