Oracle 11g installation on Windows 8 Pro

Currently Being Moderated
I used to have Windows 7 and have upgraded to Windows 8. In the Microsoft Windows 8 compatibility list, Oracle 11G is listed as compatible. However, when I try to install it on the Windows 8 professional machine, the installation fails in the Prereq check. It is an AMD 64 (Phenom II) machine with a lot of RAM etc. Any ideas?
