The cause is very clear. The installation script checks to see if the operation system is one of the supported systems/versions, and if it is not it writes an error message and refuses to install.
You might be able to edit the script by finding the correct line and add "6.0" there, but then you are running on a system that probably is not tested and might or might not work.
You would not want to run a production system on an unsupported platform (and then there is little point in testing on it in my opinion).
In Unix/Linux systems the line can be found in the oraparam.ini file.
I never changed this on a Windows system.
Just stick to W2k3 Server.
This is very frustrating. We cannot install Oracle SOA suite on Vista.
Vista is out since more than a year, yet there is no support.
Vista is meant to be an en-user platform. Oracle releases server software ... why don't you call SAP and tell them "I can't install your ERP on vista" or ask a microsoft word version for HP-UX 11 ?
Kidding, but that is kinda logical
You could use the '-ignoreSysPrereqs' setup switch. See 'setup -help'
Note the results might be unpredictable. Use at your own risk. ;-)
Though this is a zombie thread, for the sake of those seeking the answer:
1. Right-click on the setup.exe file
2. Select Properties
3. Select Compatibility tab
4. Select the "Run this program in compatibility mode for" check box
5. Choose "Windows Server 2003 (Service Pack 1)
Hope this will help a few people :-)
