          Hi Soheil Star

           

          If you browse this forum a bit then you will see that we get many questions like this and the answer is always the same

           

          1.) Desktop WIndows of any kind is NOT supported OS for 12c. Edit: thanks Gianni Ceresa for spotting

          2.) The certification matrix clearly states this: www.oracle.com/technetwork/middleware/fusion-middleware/documentation/fmw-122120-certmatrix-3254735.xlsx

          3.) If you want a cheap solution where you don't have to pay for a Windows server OS and you don't know how to isntall on Linux then go to 4

          4.) OBIEE Sample App Virtual Machines! Fully configured. Turn-key. Free as in "free beer": OBIEE Samples

            Thanks Christian for reply


            But I have seen so many installation video which install OBIEE 12c on Windows operation system. So NOT supported seems not surely cannot install 12c on Windows OS.Meanwhile I have installed WLS 12c and fmw infrastructure 12c on the same machine ,
            Mostly I want to know how to debug that
            IS there any log file which include installation errors !
            I found this line in autorun.inf file in extracted OBIEE 12c directory in tmp dir

             

            CMD=.\jdk\jre\bin\java.exe  -jar install/modules/ora-launcher.jar

            DISKCNT=2

            TEMP_SPACE_TOTAL_BYTES=3134726084

            JRE_COMPONENT=oracle.jre

             

            but I donot know how to find the error that cause the problem.
            Thanks in advance

              I have seen so many videos of cars driving into walls...sure it can be done but that doesn't mean it's supported by the manufacturer :-P

               

              Give me one single valid reason why you insist on installing it on your desktop operating system. Just one valid one that's not "I don't want to run a Linux VM".

               

              Edit: And also even the serious blog posts on the subject rather than the random ramblers out there contain many responses with gems like this:
