You may be able to convince the 11g installer to ignore the Windows version. I do not think 10g will work.
Oracle is planning on making 11gR2 available on Windows 7. There is no official notice that any older version will be made available, which implies to me that there may be problems. There are known issues with Windows 2008 R2 as well and Windows 7 is even newer.
If you face problems, it will be up to you to determine whether they are Oracle or the peculiar combination you have elected to use. The risk, of course, is yours.
Let us know how that works for you ...
Thanks for the replay. I tried to sintall 10g and 11g Standard on Win7 x86. Anyway it didn't work out. 10g gave an error when checking the system requirements. 11g installed without a problem but I couldn't make it run. When I tried to run it an empty cmd promt pops out for a sec and then nothing happenes.
Guess I have to installet on openSUSE or WinXP. In both cases I need to make a dual boot.
I don't know right now. I'm an IT Science student and I have this oracle class. The problem is that classes didn't start yet so I can't be 100% sure.
I tried before installing oracle in XP using VirtualBox but it gave me an error because I wasn't able to set up the Internet connection. Guess I'll try again.
I was able to install Oracle 10G for Vista SP 2 using Windows Compatibility Mode as suggested in this thread. Thanks very much mate. But now my only concern is towards iSQL* Plus.
All the URLs provided at the end of the installation are not working (getting page cannt be displayed error right away).
Apart from the WEB Part everything works fine. Has anyone got the solutiion for the same?
I am planning to take up OCA first exam by next week.

Hi - I've had similar problem. Am running Win7 Ultimate x64 (upgrade from Vista Ult x64) on Lenovo/Intel x64.
However, even when the compatibility is set to Vista SP2 and run as administrator, as soon as I :
- click on the type (default set to Enterprise),
- hit tab (from PWD1 to PWD2),
- click the NEXT button, OR
- even just lose focus in that window (ie, make another active)
... the SETUP app simply disappears... ie, the process exits instantaneously.
Any clues anybody - desperately needing help in getting this up urgently
thx in advance
Further to last, I've found a log file indicating following errors:
# An unexpected error has been detected by HotSpot Virtual Machine:
# EXCEPTION_ACCESS_VIOLATION (0xc0000005) at pc=0x0000000077b5f2d5, pid=5564, tid=5668
# Java VM: Java HotSpot(TM) 64-Bit Server VM (1.5.0_11-b03 mixed mode)
# Problematic frame:
# C [ntdll.dll+0x4f2d5]
Question remains... can anybody give me some guidance on what to do next?
PROB SOLVED ... I think and hope
Used recommendation from forum (which they said they got from Oracle forums somewhere), which entails doing following:
1. Do NOT use compatibility mode on the setup.exe, or else it will still fail
2. in CMD window, running it as Administrator, run the setup using following command
..... setup.exe -ignoreSysPrereqs
3. For me, this ran the install normally - except after Oracle checked compatibility itself, it showed an exception saying that it wasn't certified for Vista SP1 (?!). Check that box (and then Oracle will say that the User has agreed, or certified, or something).
4. After that, continue as usual.
Because I was in the situation of using DHCP, it also had a warning that I should setup the Microsoft Loopback Adapter. Haven't managed to do that because I'm still struggling with the changed 'user friendly' interface in Win7 which hides even more essential system management capabilities (like adding a device that the OpSys can't find itself, and not allowing me to specify what I want ...@#$@!!#$#@@%%$*&^x!)
Regardless the blank DB environment (not loaded mine yet) appears to work fine.
Hope this info helps others.
i installed the oracle 10g Enterprise Edition on my windows 7 laptop miraculosly. and i worked on it well. but, due to the change of my hard disk, i tried for re installation. but it is not installed again due to incompatibility.
thanx & regards
