    Oracle Installer Quits

    968521
      I've seen several people post similar situations in several different forums, including here, but their solutions don't seem to be working for me.

      I'm using a Windows 7, Service Pack 1 (64 bit) PC with 8GB RAM and over 100 GB available storage.

      I've downloaded and extracted the installation files for Windows x64 (http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/database/enterprise-edition/downloads/index.html) to directory c:\temp

      Upon extracting, I right clicked setup.exe and selected 'Run as Administrator'. The cmd window opens for a few seconds, then I get the Oracle 11g splash screen and I can move through the first three screens of the installation. However, upon selecting 'Desktop Class', the installer simply quits. **POOF**

      On one forum, it suggested launching the executable from a command prompt and redirecting it to a different JRE by using (this is the jdk I installed from Oracle's website):

      c:\temp\database> setup JreLoc c:\users\da\appdata\locallow\sun\java\jdk1.7.0_07_x64

      however, this solution fails to launch the installer at all. I have also tried directing this to my regular JRE at c:\Program Files (x86)\Java\jre7, but this too was unsuccessful.

      The conclusion of the log file for my last attempt is as follows:

      INFO: Waiting for completion of background operations

      INFO: Completed background operations

      INFO: Validating view at state <getOCMDetails>

      INFO: Completed validating view at state <getOCMDetails>

      INFO: Validating state <getOCMDetails>

      SEVERE: You have not provided an email address.



      Do you wish to remain uninformed of critical security issues in your configuration?

      Sorry, I'm not terribly knowledgeable on this, I'm trying to install so I can work on a self-study course. I'd appreciate any assistance.
