There is no way to help you on that ...
Have a look at the certification matrix for 18.104.22.168: the Admintool is supported only up to Windows 7, Windows 8 is not officially supported and so it works but not well at all and can also not work at all.
If you install 22.214.171.124 the Admintool is officially supported on Windows 8 and it works really well.
(Don't try to use the 126.96.36.199 Admintool with your 188.8.131.52 install, it will not work !)
Thanks for your reply. Is there any workaround for this. Actually it wastes so much of time waiting for Admin tool. will it work if I just install a obiee client seperately. or do I need to upgrade it to 184.108.40.206 version.
I'm not aware of any workaround, you must already be happy it open after waiting the 30min as it as not been developed to work on Windows 8.
Installing the client separately will just give you the same result.
If you really want to stay on Windows 8 you can move to 220.127.116.11 and there it works good or get yourself a VM running Windows XP or 7 and install your Admin tool there inside.
PS: if OBIEE is installed on the host OS itself (I guess it's a laptop based on specs) you maybe want to consider the move to VM for OBIEE.
In this way you can easily change version or even have multiple versions available keeping your OS clean.
Thank you so much. One more last help please. Can I simply download OBIEE 18.104.22.168.0 version and install directly. Will it overwrite on OBIEE 22.214.171.124.0 version. or will it create any issue and I shall loose whatever I have currently. If yes, then do I need to start from scratch like installation of RCU or directly I can run newly downloaded 126.96.36.199.0 version.
I am bit new in OBIEE. If it will be unsuccessfull and will be complicated then I can manage with whatever it is currently like admin tool is atleast opening in 30 min but can't loose entire thing.
Thanks in advance.

In theory you can do an in-place upgrade, it means that your current 188.8.131.52 will be upgraded to 184.108.40.206 and all your current objects will be moved to the new version (and it's installed over the old one, so same folders etc.).
The only possible problem is that in-place upgrade sometime doesn't work and produce issues. I did it on a linux install and it worked, but I have no direct feedback on how it can be on Windows. I saw a tweet about that earlier today, have a look at the posted link (I didn't read it....): OBIEE in IL: OBIEE - Upgrading my Windows 220.127.116.11 to 18.104.22.168
That's probably your easier quick-win.
The upgrade require the full install files, so you can already start the download while reading the doc about how to perform the upgrade.
Just make sure to follow the upgrade process and not just do a normal install in the same place.
