    If you have installed Discoverer Administrator and Desktop (separate) from WebLogic Server / Fusion Middleware, there is not need to apply a patch.

    If you are trying to patch up to 11.1.1.7.0, that is not possible from the standalone client install. 

    You can only get 11.1.1.7.0 client software by installing the entire package (WLS and FMw Portal, Forms, Reports, Discoverer).  However, there is no need to be at 11.1.1.7.0 Admin/Desktop.  There is no difference between Admin/Desktop 11.1.1.3.0 and 11.1.1.7.0.  As per Oracle's stated direction has always been to the Web editions (Plus and Viewer).  To that end there have been no enhancements made to the client software (Admin and Desktop).
