I downloaded oracle database 11gR2 software for windows X64 platform from OTN. it contains two distinct zip files(file1 and file2). the first file extracted but couldn't do the same for the second file. It keeps telling me zip file is empty. I decided to go along and install but after 40% (copying file), I got an error saying the file path was not found
' File not found C:\app\Chike\product\11.2.0\dbhome_2\owb\external\oc4j_applications\applications\WFMGRApp'
pls I need possible solutions to solve this.
First, Win 8 is not a certified OS to install 11gR2 - Oracle Database Preinstallation Requirements
Which version of Win 8 ? If you have Pro or Enterprise, you will have to install 12c - Oracle Database Preinstallation Tasks
Home versions of Windows are not certified for any Oracle installs.
You will need to download both zip files, then unzip both into a single directory before running setup.exe. Your unzip issue indicates that the second zip file is corrupted.
Correct - assuming you have Win 8 Pro or Enterprise.
Also, heed these instructions when trying to install
1. Both install zip files will need to be unzipped into one single folder
2. There are no directories with spaces (eg "Program Files") in the install process
3. setup.exe was invoked by right-clicking and selecting "Run As Administrator"
4. do not choose to create the database at the time of the install - instead, choose to install the software only first, then use DBCA to create databases.
