How to install Oracle EBS R12 on Windows 7 (32-bit)?

Hi All,

Does anybody have successfully installed EBS R12 on Windows 7 Professional or Home Premium (32 or 64 bit)?
If the answer is yes, please share your experience.
It is not important at this point whether Oracle has certified Windows 7 or not.
I just want to know if this can be done.

Thanks,
F. Amorsolo

    Windows 7 is not certified as you mentioned above, and I have never heard of any successful installation of 11i/R12 on Windows 7 Professional/Home (32-bit or 64-bit).

    You could create a VM, and use a certified OS (Windows or Linux) then install R12.

    It could be done or not, question is why you want to make installation on not certified platform. If even you succeded you can not get any support from oracle. By the way if you wonder someone succeded or not I belive the better quesion is Is anyone try it on win 8 :)

    Hi,

    It could be done or not, question is why you want to make installation on not certified platform.

    I would like to install Oracle EBS to my personal laptop. For as long as it works, it does not matter to me whether it is Oracle certified or not. It is very convinient for me to use my laptop to demo the applications (VISION) to my business users. The company I work for do not have the Vision model of Oracle installed in their EBS system not to mention the response time issue.

    I had Oracel EBS R12 installed on my personal Desktop but it won't make sense to carry my desktop around attending meetings with business users going from one building to another. Sometimes travelling to far locations to meet with business users. Yes, we use WebEx as well but sometimes you need to meet in person.

    If even you succeded you can not get any support from oracle.

    Oracle support for my laptop is not important at the moment.

    By the way if you wonder someone succeded or not I belive the better quesion is Is anyone try it on win 8

    Win 8 is not what I have installed on my laptop right now. Besides, I have no time to play with Win 8 right now.

    Thanks,

    Thanks for responding. Unfortunately, I do not have Linux VM. This is for my laptop with Win 7 only.

    For personal learning purposes, you can download and install a VM on your Win 7 laptop for free.

    You may try Windows XP Professional. Even though it is not supported, you can manage to install R12 on XP.

    Yes I have been able to install EBS r12 on windows 7 ultimate 64bit  SP1 without any problems.

     

    From my experience of checking blogs, I recommend that you don't have any oracle product installed.

     

    Especially the Oracle database. Don't worry EBS has it's own Database.
    Which you can use as normal, you just need to set your environment variables first!
