I'm a little pissed off.I've installed Oracle 11g R2 a few times now..on windows xp without any issues but the first time I've tried to install 11g R2 64-bit on my new laptop and it just won't work.
The installation goes just fine until step 4 System class and I chose Desktop class and the installation program just hangs.
I've done the following steps
1: Installed Java SDK 6 update 31 in the following directory C:\Java\jdk1.6.0_31
2: I've also disabled User account control settings to never notify.
3: I've tried unzipping the two zip files separately and together with the same result.(hung installation)
4: updated java_home and path environment variables with the java sdk directory. (My path does have other values which have a space between directory names..ive tried
removing all those entries and just keeping the java directory entry but it still gave me the same error)
5: I always kick off the installation setup.exe file as an administrator.
I'ld appreciate some help....
