          Hi,

          Welcome to OTN forums!

          Yes, Oracle Database Express Edition 11g Release 2 32bit is working on Windows 7 x64

          Regards

            Depends on how you define "work"...

            Platform is not on the system req's list. Home editions are probably not supported either.

            Also, read previous threads, e.g.
            Windows 7 64-bit

              The install may seem to work on x64, but check your alert log (the error log for the database), and I think you will find it filled with the following error that repeats about every ten seconds:

              OER 7451 in Load Indicator : Error Code = OSD-04500: illegal option specified
              O/S-Error: (OS 1) Incorrect function. !
              OER 7451 in Load Indicator : Error Code = OSD-04500: illegal option specified
              O/S-Error: (OS 1) Incorrect function. !

              That is NOT my definition of a working install. It might be ok for a quick evaluation of Oracle Express, but I certainly would NOT trust any of my important data to it.

              In other words, it appears to work on 64-bit, but if you dig deeper you will find it is throwing errors because of an incompatibility with the 64-bit operating system. There is a reason why Oracle did not certify it on 64-bit!
