I have new Laptop Acer - intel i7 8GB RAM and 1TB HDD with windows 8, I have downloaded Oracle 11g 64bit from Oracle site. I am trying to install on it. During installation I am selecting "Create and configure a database" option, then Next, after that there is a question "Desktop Class" and " Server Class", I am selecting Desktop Class and pressing Next. When I am pressing Next then it just goes off, does not show any message or any new screen, it just close the installation window. Please any one can help me how to resolve this issue. Can any one tell me how to check the log file and where I can locate the log file.
Thanks for the reply, Just for your information last week I bought the Microsoft Surface - with windows 8 pro and I was able to installed Oracle 11g R2 64 bit on it. Unfortunately I did not like Surface Tab and returned the same to replace with Acer Laptop. My question, if i was able to install the same Oracle 11g under windows 8 on the Tab then why I am not able to install the same oracle on my Laptop. Can you please let me know how to check the log file and where I can locate it, or any other way to check what is the actual issue.
Thanks once again your help and looking forward your expert feedback.
Since Win 8 is not certified, the install process may or may not succeed. If it does succeed, the software may or may not work as advertised. You will have to troubleshoot any issues during the install or after on your own.
