This install seems to be part of an OBIEE install. Pl ensure that there are no spaces or special characters in any directory names during the install process.

Are you running the install with Administrator privileges ?
Please click on "more details" to see more information about the failure.
Please check if "WORKSTATION" and "SERVER" services are started. These services are required for pre-req checks.
Rerun the setup program. And check if all the Prerequisite Checks Succeed.
is your os 64 bit or 32 bit?
is your database setup is 64 bit or 32 bit?
I have extracted again the contents of downloaded files 1 & 2 to C: root (without any spaces) instead of any other drive. I run the setup again but the same failures are occurred. I have 500Gb hard drive, 200Gb free in C: and 3Gb RAM.
I have also tried running the setup with Administrator rights.
After all, I do not understand why it shows the Physical Memory, Available Physical Memory and Swap Size failure?
I have checked both of these services. They have been started since login-in to the windows as their status are set to Automatic.
I am using 32-bit Windows 7 Ultimate. Obviously the database is also 32-bit. If the database was 64-bit and not 32-bit, it never run on 32-bit OS ever.
I downloaded the database from the following link:
I am using 32-bit Windows 7 Ultimate
Why? I can almost guarantee your hardware is 64 bit. Why do people insist on running 32-bit OS? Especially if you are running the "ultimate" edition of Win7.
It's long past time to be driving a stake in the heart of 32-bit software. Just as PCs moved from 8-bit to 16-bit, to 32-bit. Time to move on. Past time to move on.
Thank you for your reply.
I issued dxdiag command in run dialog. The snapshot is as follows:
You have to execute setup.exe with Admin privs - it is a requirement - see the Install Guide. Many people have had better success by just installing the software first, then creating the database using DBCA, rather than combine both into one step during the install
Same failures as in my first post.
The failures are no more. The correct answer has been found on the below post. I am very thankful to everybody to share me their experiences.
There seems to be a problem with the Oracle 11g R2 universal installer (OUI) detecting the server configuration that requires an adminstrative share on C$ to be created.
Start --> Settings --> Control Panel --> Administrative Tools --> Computer Management
Expand "Shared Folders" then right click on "Shares" and select "New File Share"
Define the C$ share as follows
Folder to share: C:\
Share name : C$
Once this is done OUI detects the configuration for pre-install checks without any problems (at least in Windows XP Pro SP3)
Once installed, you can remove the C$ share
Please refer to these MOS bug id docs for more information:
Bug 9835902: TO SHARE C$ IS A REQUIREMENT ON 11.2 NOT INCLUDED ON INSTALLATION GUIDE
Bug 9814589 - INSTALLATION OF 11GR2 FAILS CHECKING PREREQS IS C$ IS NOT SHARED
