Can you verify the OS version? Are you really trying to install on Windows 2008 with Service Pack 2 or Windows 2008 R2.
If you are attempting to install on Windows 2008 R2 then you would get that message. The first versions supported on Windows 2008 R2 x64 are 11.2 and 10.2.0.5.0. So, you must be at 10.2.5.0 for Windows 2008 R2, or go with 11.2.
If you need to install 10.2.0.4.0 x64 on Windows 2008 R2, you will need to set the following parameter to disable system pre-reqs and avoid that error.
Then apply the 10.2.0.5.0 patch set to be supported or go with the latest ODAC bundle 184.108.40.206.2 which is certified on Windows 2008 R2.
Sorry for that, your correct. R2 not SP2. Yesterday was a bad day and I've been fighting with Oracle for months now.
I'll try all that. As far as versions 10 versus 11, I don't know what we are using. I'm assuming these are Oracle Server versions and not client versions. I'm a .NET developer with no experience with Oracle , so bear with me please.
I tried running the install with the ignore prerequisites arg and still got the Java error.
I checked the version of the database and got this.
Oracle Database 10g Release 10.2.0.4.0 - 64bit Production
PL/SQL Release 10.2.0.4.0 - Production
CORE 10.2.0.4.0 Production
TNS for Solaris: Version 10.2.0.4.0 - Production
NLSRTL Version 10.2.0.4.0 - Production

Are you installing from the Vista/Windows 2008 install bundle when you get the java error. You must use the 10.2.0.4.0 install bundle for Vista/2008 ((10204_vista_w2k8_x64_production_client) and the OUI option to ignore the prereqs when installing on Windows 2008 R2. Then in order to be in a support configuration, you must apply the 10.2.0.5.0 patch set. is there any reason why you are installing 10.2.0.4.0 on windows 2008 r2. We have a 11.2 client bundle that is certified and supported against older database versions.
