Can any one tell me, does oracle 11g XE 64 bit for Windows 8pro is available?

If yes, can you send me the link for the same...

Thanks & Regards,

    Hello,

    unfortunately, neither Windows 8 nor any 64 bit Windows release is (currently) supported by 11g XE.
    There have been quite a few threads by people who encountered different issues when installing the XE release for 32bit Windows on 64bit target systems. It seems possible, though accompanied with a lot of debugging, and especially on Win 8, things get worse. If you can, use a VM with a supported 32bit Windows or 64bit Linux release. See {thread:id=2278170} (and the OTN docs referenced there) for details.

    Thanks Udo,

    Any possible expectation to see the compatibility of XE with Win 8 Pro 64 bit systems.

    Thanks

    Hello Santosh,

    unfortunately, there have been no announcements on that yet. There is a [url http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/database/windows/tech-info/sod-oracle-db-win8-win2012-1853201.pdf]statement of direction that the 11.2.0.4 patch set for the regular database releases will bring support for Windows 8 and Server 2012, but this does not affect XE. Given the release cycle so far, I'd really recommend to look for a VM-based solution...
