XE for Windows fails to complete installation

    Hi folks,

    To try to add some clarity  - Windows 10 Home Edition is not supported with XE (or any other Oracle Database on Windows edition). What this means primarily is it was not tested. We started to see a few pretty bad problems on machines with Windows 10 Home that seemed like they would have been caught during normal testing, as Oracle's Database testing is extremely comprehensive, so I had to start discouraging people from using it. It's possible these problems are not related to home edition after all, so as time goes by and I post more solutions to common issues here, if you get it working then more power to you.

    We are evaluating whether we will support it in a future release.

    Hey Christian,

    That is exactly the type of answer I was looking for.

    I will try to find some time to play with it, to hopefully find some kind of workaround.
