    An excellent note to book mark is Note 233047.1  (How To Find Oracle BI Discoverer 10g and 11g Certification Information).  This not only contains instructions on locating Discoverer certifications but certification FAQs as well.

    Discoverer Administrator and Desktop are 32 bit applications.  In 2009 Oracle's stated direction for Discoverer was toward the web editions.  To that end there have been no enhancements made to Admin or Desktop.  It is recommended to use Plus and Viewer, not Desktop.  Oracle's latest statement of Direction (2014) can be found :

    Discoverer Desktop is certified for installation on native 32bit Windows platforms.  Discoverer Desktop is certified for installation on Windows 7 32 bit, and Windows 7 64bit in XP Mode.  The latest Windows releases (Win 8, 10. etc.) are not certified.
