Please check System Requirements for same. Win8 is not certified OS, thats the reason you are getting RED status during installation
The following system requirements apply for this release:
- Mac OS Leopard
- Windows XP, Vista, Windows 7 - 32/64 bit
- Oracle Enterprise Linux 5 - 32/64bit
- Recommend 2GB memory for IDE and an additional 2GB if running server locally
For your second issue related to Java runtime environment, try to provide jrelocation as below
setup.exe -jreLoc JRE_LOCATION
I am using Win8 64bit OS. And I'm trying to install V37380-01_1of2.zip and V37380-01_2of2.zip after the jdk-7u51-windows-x64.exe and wls1036_generic.jar were installed in my pc successfully. Below are the setup in my PC:
JAVA_HOME = C:\Program Files\Java\jdk1.7.0_51; which is correct location in my pc;
PATH = PATH=C:\Program Files\Java\jdk1.7.0_51\bin;C:\Program Files\Java\jdk1.7.0_51\jre\bin;D:\ProgramFiles\product\11.2.0\dbhome_1\bin;
A foler 'jre7' in the same forder with JDK was generated after install JDK. That means there are two folders under folder 'C:\Program Files\Java' after JDK installation.
I ran the command setup.exe -jreLoc C:\Program Files\Java\jdk1.7.0_51\jre under SOA folder disk1 foder 'D:\Tools\SOA\Disk1'. Oracle Universal Installer error shows: The Java RunTime Environment was not found at C:\Program\bin\javaw.exe. Hence, the Oracle Universal Installer can't be run. Please visit http://www.javasoft.com and install JRE version 1.3.1 or higher and try again.
I checked there is no folder Program under C drive in my pc. so I don't know which part is wrong. Please advise, thanks.
never ever install any Oracle component including Java into the Windows "Program Files" / "Program File(x86)" system directories since they contain a blank space. Even if in your local language settings, the folders might be named different withaout any blank space (e.g. in German "Programme" and "Programme(x86)", they do contain a blank space on file system level. Solution:
- Install Java SDK to a non-blank-space directory such as C:\Oracle\Java\jdk1.6.0_45 (jdk version of your choice)
- Adapt your JAVA_HOME and PATH system variable accordingly
- Install your Oracle database into a directory not containing any blank spaces, e.g. C:\Oracle\XE11g2.
- Install your Oracle components to a middleware home directory not containing any blank spaces, e.g. C:\Oracle\FMW11117 or C:\Oracle\FMW11gR1PS6.
Best Practice tip: include the version numbers for DB directory and FMW home to be able to install different versions over the years (e.g. when 12c comes out)
Your workspace directory shouldn't contain any blank spaces as well as your JDev directory ;-)
Please let me know if this helps.
