I am trying to install 11i from edelivery. I am not going through any staging process and installing directly from the zipped files.
It passes through utility check successfully and when it starts to install, it completes very fast in 3 minute time and does not install anything - am I doing anything incorrect here - please guide.
You still need to use the stage area, you cannot install from the zip files directly.
- Put all the zip files which you have downloaded into a directory that does not have spaces in the name (i.e. Stage11i)
- Unzip the files
- Start the installer
It should work fine then. Just make sure you clean your previous failed installation before doing the above.
Let me brief what I have done:
1. Windows 2003 Service pack 1 installed
2. Installed cgywin and vc++
3. 7 .zip files downloaded from edelivery into E: drive
4. before installing I have made sure that I have enough disk space (I have 500 GB)
5. I removed the earlier files created due to installation as per your advice
6. Now, while staging, there are 7 options - I am choosing option 6 (APPL_TOP) - do I need to choose all the options one by one?
7. after some time, it shows me to insert DVD labeled Oracle Applications Rapid install and I am giving E: - but it shows "invalid disk is entered" and keeps on repeating - please suggest what needs to be done here.
for the cds you should have the follow under your stage11i directory
d:\Stage11i\startCD ----------> starthere
d:\Stage11i\oraApps ----------> appl_top
d:\Stage11i\oraDB ----------> RDBMS
d:\Stage11i\oraiAS ----------> ora_tools
d:\Stage11i\oraAppDB ----------> Databases cds
d:\Stage11i\oraNLS ----------> NLS CD if you are using any
then you start the rapidwiz from the startcd/disk1/rapidwiz
but it shows "invalid disk is entered" and keeps on repeatingThis is due to incorrect stage area structure.
Please refer to the directory structure mentioned above to validate your stage area.
I did exactly as explained -
1. Unzipped all the files (disk1 through 7) to E:\11i\Stage11i
2. Ran rapidwiz.cmd from E:\11i\Stage11i\StartCD\Disk1\Rapidwiz
3. The bootstrap process shows 100% immediately
4. The bar below stops at 33% to tell "Copying StartCD to "F:\rapidinstall" (as my config.txt is in F:)
5. Just after a minute the second bar is completing 100% and the screen vanishes.
I have been trying this for 3/4 days now but without any luck. I have removed all the old install files and restarting each time.
The following are the .zip files that I have downloaded from edelivery for 11i
Please guide what is wrong here. Thanks!
B24280-01 is just the startCD directory structure. You need to unzip all of the remaining R12 for Windows disk images until you get to the Documentation CD:
I do not have MS Visual Studio 2005. Seems We can download and install the 2005 express edition. Referring the forum, I see the apps installation will not, but any additional patchs may not get linked.
Would someone can validate, whether I can install MS vidual Studio 2006 instead 2005 or the express edition? Thanks
You can manage to have the installation completes successfully with the express edition, but you cannot run any AD tool later (adadmin, adpatch, .. etc).
I am very new to Oracle E-Business Suite, though I plan to install release 12 on windows XP. Please let me know the Minimum hardware specs for a successful install on windows XP
RAM = you mentioned 2 Gigs and above
Please include a brief description of the download and installation process you followed.
Thanks for the advice in advance.
I have not installed R12 but I have R11i . And Hussein and others helped me a lot to do this. You follow his steps as he has mentioned and if you follow carefully then you might not need to ask anybody anything.
Also you will have to see what platform you are installing as requirements/steps may vary slighly.
All the best.
Thanks for the steps hsawwan the installation went very smoothly.
You're welcome, glad to hear that.
