    Installation of Oracle 11g on Windows 8

    997291
      I am trying to install Oracle 11g Database in my windows 8 system.
      Whenever i click on the setup.exe the installer window pops up and nothing happens.
      I am running it as an administrator.

      I need some help on this. I have tried to run in compatibility mode as well but help.

          Pl identify exact version. Neither 11gR1 not 11gR2 are supported on Win 8 - supported OS versions are documented - http://docs.oracle.com/cd/E11882_01/install.112/e24186/reqs.htm#CHDHGGFE

          Certification of Win 8 is expected with a future release - see http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/database/windows/tech-info/sod-oracle-db-win8-win2012-1853201.pdf

          You have three options

          1. Wait for this future Oracle release
          2. Downgrade your OS to a supported version.
          3. Install VM software (like Virtualbox), create a VM, install a supported OS in the VM, then install 11gR2 in the VM - see my blog (linked in my profile) for a detailed example
          Whenever i click on the setup.exe the installer window pops up and nothing happens.
          I am running it as an administrator.

                  Either VirtualBox or VMworkstation are suitable. I find VMworkstation a little easier to work with in some regards, but am currently using VBox simply because it is free.

                  Once you have installed either product, you can create a virtual machine running whatever OS you want. I would suggest it be one that is actually listed in the Installation Guide as being supported. Lacking any more information about your requirement, I'd recommend Oracle Linux 5

                          For 11.2.0.1, use either Linux 5.7 or 5.8 - again, pl check my blog for detailed install instructions

                                There is a specific certification forum for these type of questions - Oracle Certification Program

                                Asking for dumps is illegal -
