Installation issues with Oracle Database 21c Express Edition


I downloaded Oracle Database 21c Express Edition from and extracted the zip file on to my Windows 10 machine.

When I invoke setup.exe, the installation is failing with this message:

The files for installation requirement XEPrerequisites could not be found. The installation will now stop. This is probably due to a failed, or canceled download.

However, I have downloaded the zip successfully and extracted all the files. Not sure what prerequisites do I need to continue installing the software. Could you please assist?
