    How to install EBS R12.2.0 in Windows Server 2012 R2 64bit

    Beauty_and_dBest

      Hi ALL,

       

      I downloaded the following:

      1. startCD 51,

      2. Cygwin,

      3. Gnumake,

      4. C++

      5. 12.2.0 zip

       

      And read the Mos  (Doc ID 1330706.1)

       

      But it just tells a lot of installation pre-reqs. Everything seems installing all simultaneously the tools needed.

      It did not mentioned how to unzip the installers  12.2.0 and start the main installation proper.

       

      Please help how to start this install guide.

      It lacks proper structuring, cohesiveness, and continuity of thoughts for the beginners

       

      That is why installation blogs are very helpful because their procedure is very user friendly.

       

       

      Kind regards,

      jc

          Hi jc,

           

          12.2 on Windows is pretty tricky, especially on Windows 2012. I have only done it on Windows 2008 but the documentation has the steps you have to do for 2012.

           

          Follow these notes:
