Oracle XE 18c installation stuck in Windows 10 Pro

Hello, I've got the same problem as other people. The installer stalls forever trying to create the first DB. This is Windows 10 Pro version 1903.
At this point, pressing the Cancel button has no effect: the installation is not terminated.
As several messages are in Spanish, I'm going to translate them manually (they may not match the native English messages). This is what I found in several log files:

1) cfgtoollogs\dbca: inside this directory, logs and the lck file are zero bytes in length.

2) cfgtoollogs\netca\netca_OraDB18Home1*.log:
Listener configuration finished.
Configuration of the default local nomenclature finished.
Oracle network services have been configured correctly. Exit code is 0

3) cfgtoollogs\netca\trace_OraDB18Home1*.log:

So far so good, it seems the installation went well. However, the installation process is still stuck at "creating Oracle XE database". I found another log in other directory:

4) dbhomeXE\log\<machine_name>\client\TNSLSNR_9612.log

ut_read_reg:2:ocr registry key SOFTWARE\Oracle\olr cannot be opened. error 2

What remote equipment is the log referencing? I'm not in a company's network, I'm using my private computer at home.
Also, the process "Java(TM) Platform SE binary" is growing endlessly. I guess you don't control errors inside the code trying to create the db and so the program leaks memory?
At the time I killed it, it was using 1.5 GB of RAM.

C'mon, I've installed in this computer Firebird, MySql, SqlServer and PostgreSql. Guess what? They install quickly and without errors.
Why are you making the Oracle XE installation so painfully complex?
I have in the network adapter "client for MS networks" and "printer and files sharing" but I guess the problem is that I have some services not running. As I said, this is my computer directly connected to the Internet.
I just wanted to refresh my old basic knowledge of stored procs but I see that after many years, Oracle still requires a mastery of black magic to be installed.

Maybe I should wait for another release?

    There's been a few common issues we are seeing, lets make sure you are not hitting them:

    1) Is ORACLE_HOME or TNS_ADMIN set in the environment? Go to a command prompt, type "set". You will need to temporarily unset any such environment variables.

    4) On your network adapter that you are using, check (enable) "Client for Microsoft Networks" and "File and Printer Sharing for Microsoft Networks".

    5) Check to see if Netbios is enabled on your network connection:

    See this link for more info:

    6) In some cases, antivirus has interfered with an installation. Try installing without anti-virus.

    7) Try creating a local user and adding to local administrator group and then log in and install as that user.

    As few folks suggested I upgraded from

    Win 10 Home to Win 10 Enterprise

    removed virus software

    I have admin access to Windows

    the Environment variable does not contain Oracle_Home,

    network configuration shows check (enable) "Client for Microsoft Networks" and "File and Printer Sharing for Microsoft Networks".

    Stil after about 95% (visually looking at the progress bar), installation of Oracel XE starts reversing and fails.

    Thanks for the help.

    What about step #5 above? Did you do that?

    Is TNS_ADMIN set in the environment?

  • I have follow all the above steps but still it stucks at 95% and its not completing the installation.

    What to do now? should we need to cancel?
