Install Oracle 10g onward database, developer on Windows 7

General Notice:

Please note, we don’t have solution for you, if you are trying to install Oracle database 10.1.x.x on Windows 7 or Windows 8. We apologize for a bit confusing title for this particular post which says “Install 10g onwards…” which is not literally true! Our tested database version was 10.2.0.3 and we were having the impression that all 10g releases had the same architecture.

We tried around a couple of dozen times to install 10.1.0.2 database on both Windows 7 (32/64bit) and on Windows 8, and every time the results were futile and we are resigning from future attempts :)

*Update* 11.Dec.2011

*Update* 13.Nov.2012

We are limiting this workaround method for Oracle Database versions 10.2.x.x and above, as one recent lab test proved that 10.1.x.x installation on Windows 7 never completing successfully. Run under compatibility mode set as OS version 5.1 (Windows XP Professional), failed to create database during the installation process, throwing Oracle error “ORA-12546″

This error looks like the same issues we had with Database 9i setup in the lab, apparently without any solutions. So, we guess it is time to move on :)

*Update* 21.Nov.2012

Looks like we are always on to the subject :) Anyway for those who guys have access to Oracle support, there is a happy news. The frequent crash experienced by Developer 10g forms are addressed to a greater level with an upgrade to 10.1.2.3.0 (patch number 5983622)

Noticed changes

  1. Forms doesn’t crash while opening form modules which are referring views, database objects like packages, procedures and functions WHILE NOT connected to database (Provided, minimum one time the forms developer was connected to the database, until a restart). Speaking English. Start developer 10g(patched), connect to database. Close forms developer and start it again, try to open forms modules without connecting to database until the computer restarts, you shouldn’t experience crashes.
  2. Quicker start-up, and the interface is ready to serve much faster than 10.1.2.0.2
  3. Installation has an option to override required OS version with y/n prompt

PART I (Install Oracle 10g on Windows 7)

Almost after more than year time, We still receive requests asking for assistance with installing Oracle 10g database while Oracle has 11g release 2 in place. We do understand why many need Oracle 10g against the latest released database and we confirm our claim once again YOU CAN INSTALL Oracle 10g on Windows 7 (Home Basic, Home Premium, Professional etc)

Though I believe the maximum number Oracle applications are accessed through Microsoft Windows clients, when the cooperation comes in, Oracle and Microsoft behave like sisters in a fight and the end users suffer!

As a Oracle developer it is my primary requirement to have a local database running from my laptop/desktop, having the oracle development tools properly installed and once I started with Windows 7, apparently failed miserably to get the Oracle stuff installed properly on Windows 7.

It took me almost 6 or more months to come against another wordpress blog where a user has posted a fix and frankly it WORKS

Before checking the workaround check what Chris F has to say

“Thanks.  This was helpful.  I noticed when installing the 10.2.0.4 server that even after changing the refhost.xml file, I was still getting the same version check errors.  I then had to go into the “install/oraparam.ini” file and change the certified version comma-delimited list there.  After that, the installer was happier.”

here is the work around.

Example, go to this folder “E:\Installers\Oracle_10g_1023\Disk1\stage\prereq\db”

locate the file “refhost.xml”, open it with notepad

you must see something like this

<CERTIFIED_SYSTEMS>
<OPERATING_SYSTEM>
<VERSION VALUE=”5.0″/>
<SERVICE_PACK VALUE=”1″/>
</OPERATING_SYSTEM>
<OPERATING_SYSTEM>
<VERSION VALUE=”5.1″/>
<SERVICE_PACK VALUE=”1″/>
</OPERATING_SYSTEM>
<OPERATING_SYSTEM>
<VERSION VALUE=”5.2″/>
</OPERATING_SYSTEM>
<!–Microsoft Windows Vista–>
<OPERATING_SYSTEM>
<VERSION VALUE=”6.0″/>
</OPERATING_SYSTEM>
</OPERATING_SYSTEM>
</CERTIFIED_SYSTEMS>

now add the following:

<!–Microsoft Windows 7–>
<OPERATING_SYSTEM>
<VERSION VALUE=”6.1″/>
</OPERATING_SYSTEM>

within <CERTIFIED_SYSTEMS>   </CERTIFIED_SYSTEMS> tags, and the final entries should look like this

<CERTIFIED_SYSTEMS>
<OPERATING_SYSTEM>
<VERSION VALUE=”5.0″/>
<SERVICE_PACK VALUE=”1″/>
</OPERATING_SYSTEM>
<OPERATING_SYSTEM>
<VERSION VALUE=”5.1″/>
<SERVICE_PACK VALUE=”1″/>
</OPERATING_SYSTEM>
<OPERATING_SYSTEM>
<VERSION VALUE=”5.2″/>
</OPERATING_SYSTEM>
<!–Microsoft Windows Vista–>
<OPERATING_SYSTEM>
<VERSION VALUE=”6.0″/>
</OPERATING_SYSTEM>
<!–Microsoft Windows 7–>
<OPERATING_SYSTEM>
<VERSION VALUE=”6.1″/>
</OPERATING_SYSTEM>
</CERTIFIED_SYSTEMS>

Now run the Oracle installer and you would see the installation completes without giving any errors.

PART II (Install Developer Suite 10g on Windows 7)

Step 1 Setup Virtual Memory

Depending upon actual memory available with your computer, setup virtual memory. You can go upto double the size of actual memory while setting up your virtual memory. Please refer to the image(s) below

You would be asked to restart the computer and please restart.

Step 2 Setting up the Developer Suite 10g installer

Open the Disk 1 folder and locate “Setup.exe’

Right click “Setup.exe” and change the compatibility to Windows XP Service Pack 2 or 3

Step 3 Install Developer Suite 10g

Double click and start the installation, if you already have Sp1 installed and running latest Java runtime, you may come across PSAPI.DLL errors a number of times, caused by a function call missing information. You can safely ignore the warning messages and complete the installation.

        Hi Jamal
        It looks like the installation was not done properly. Specifically, we cannot provide solutions to such situations. This article is for the users who already have certain level of experience with OS, Oracle database and related products. We are sorry to hear that you couldn’t get it working.

    hi 7 bugs!!
    thanks for idea of editing refhost file,installer was happy to move but this time i got DCA error of ORA:12560 TNS protocal adapter error. pls suggest way out

    • windows7bugs says:

      Hello sud_dhiman
      Normally the error “ORA:12560 TNS protocal adapter error” happens when the Oracle database service under Windows/Linux fail to start.
      Now please answer the following:
      Does your PC/laptop has a dedicated IP address? (Static IP address or Microsoft loopback adaptor)
      Make sure your antivirus & firewall are disabled during the installation of Oracle database
      Try to re-install the product and post us the results

      Regards,

      • sud_dhiman says:

        hi 7,
        i tried reinstalling 10g on win7, and kept firewall disbaled. still getting TNS 12560 error during DCA database creation first time while installation about to finish. I even tried to set ORACLE_SID but not getting SID as database yet not be created.

        Now installation finished by ignoring error but while connecting sysdba its showing TNS 12560 error. Any way out plss

  22. windows7bugs says:

    Hello John
    Would you please be more specific about your OS (32/64bit), Home/Professional/Ultimate etc?
    What product you are trying to install? Database/Developer suite

    Without having such details with posts, we will not able to provide you further assistance.

    As mentioned with the post, the work arounds were successful under

    Windows 7 Professional 64bit boxes
    Oracle database 10g (any release)
    Oracle developer suite 10g
    Oracle developer 6i (with and without patch 18)

  23. windows7bugs says:

    Hi John
    Please try to download the installation package once again and try to install Oracle. 90% of the time this particular error happens when the installation package is corrupt.

    Please try to install from a fresh downloaded installation source and kindly let us know whether you were able to.

    Regards,
    Admin

  24. john says:

    I downloaded new setup package of the same and did recommended changes, and on installation the command prompt showed: “Checking operating system version: must be 5.0,5.1,5.2,or 6.0 actual 6.1 Failed<<<"
    then i changed the compatibility of setup file to vista. Now the setup starts but selecting advance installation and clicking next button,the setup window closes….. totally confused, can't understand what to do now

    • windows7bugs says:

      Further, if you find installing 10g database too much trouble, try installing Oracle database 11g R2.
      Read few places that it installs perfectly on Windows 7 without hacks.

      Regards,
      Admin

  25. windows7bugs says:

    Hi John
    Did we say changing the compatibility for installing the database anywhere with our post? I hope we didn’t.
    Please go through the entire post

    http://windows7bugs.wordpress.com/2010/02/18/install-oracle-10g-onward-database-developer-on-windows-7/

    read carefully and try to install the database. All the best.

    • john says:

      thanks to windows7bugs the installation was successful…. the only other changes that i had to do was in the file “oraparam” in install folder.
      the changes were: [Certified Versions]
      #You can customise error message shown for failure, provide value for CERTIFIED_VERSION_FAILURE_MESSAGE
      Windows=5.0,5.1,5.2,6.0
      I changed it to: [Certified Versions]
      #You can customise error message shown for failure, provide value for CERTIFIED_VERSION_FAILURE_MESSAGE
      Windows=5.0,5.1,5.2,6.0,6.1
      and also added:
      [Windows-6.1-required]
      #Minimum display colours for OUI to run
      MIN_DISPLAY_COLORS=256
      #Minimum CPU speed required for OUI
      #CPU=300.

  33. windows7bugs says:

    Hello Eleash
    You will not find refhost.xml for Developer Suit, refhost.xml file is available with database installation packages. To install Developer suite, just follow the section explains the same.

    For a quick reference, unzip your sources to a new folder. Right click on the install.exe/setup.exe and select compatibility as Windows XP SP2 after setting up virtual memory parameters manually.

    Please read our post carefully once again, and we are sure you will able to finish the installation without much troubles.

    All the best

    Is there any way to install Oracle 9i database with developer 6i on window7

    • windows7bugs says:

      Hello Ibrar

      Unfortunately we don’t have access to 9i database installation sources. Let us see whether we could get some from the archives. If we can, we will be more than glad to let you know whether it could be done or not. Meanwhile try the following

      Extract your 9i database installation files to a folder in C:

      eg: c:\9idbsrouces

      now go to command prompt
      and change the working directory

      cd C:\9idbsrouces

      now type setup -ignoreSysPrereqs

      monitor the installation process and let us know whether you managed to install the database

      We were able to install 8i client this way (a crash about java was reported during install however we were able to connect to 10.x.x.x database using 8i client on Windows 7 64bit)

      Please note, you shouldn’t use these kind of workarounds for production environments, these are meant for learning and testing ONLY.

      Regards,
      Admin

    • windows7bugs says:

      Muhammad, it looks like you are certainly not allowed to install oracle 9i database on Windows 7. There are no known workarounds for jrew.exe crash.

        Hello Jo

        You are getting the listed exception while trying to install the database or while you are trying to connect to the installed database while doing some sort of scripting programming? like jsp pages?

        Regards,

        Admin

      • jo says:

        yes iam getting the above exception when i try to connect to the installed database…………….. i want to do mini projects using core java not jsp

      • windows7bugs says:

        Hello Jo
        “sql exception: [Microsoft][ODBC driver for Oracle][Oracle]ORA-06413: Connection not open.
        java.sql.SQLException: [Microsoft][ODBC driver for Oracle][Oracle]ORA-06413: Connection not open.”

        From the errors, we could read that you are creating ODBC connection using DSN right? With 64bit Windows operating system, you will not able straightaway hookup your DSN, as the drivers get installed under native 64bit repos. Last year we had the same problems and were able to resolve by switching to 10g 64bit client.

        Have a look at following threads

        hi,
        atlast i tried to install oracle 11g(11.2.0.1.0) express edition in my laptop and some how with lot of hurdles i installed it.
        secondly, i created a listener and a database
        thirdly, i wrote the bello coding in elipse.

        import java.sql.Connection;

        import java.sql.Date;

        import java.sql.DriverManager;

        import java.sql.ResultSet;

        import java.sql.SQLException;

        import java.sql.Statement;

        public class Test
        {

        public static final String DBURL = “jdbc:oracle:thin:@localhost:1524:Demo”;

        public static final String DBUSER = “system”;

        public static final String DBPASS = “manager”;

        public static void main(String[] args) throws SQLException
        {

        DriverManager.registerDriver(new oracle.jdbc.driver.OracleDriver());

        Connection con = DriverManager.getConnection(DBURL, DBUSER, DBPASS);

        Statement statement = con.createStatement();

        ResultSet rs = statement.executeQuery(“SELECT * FROM emp”);

        if(rs.next())
        {

        System.out.println(“”+rs.getString(1));
        System.out.println(“”+rs.getString(2));
        }
        rs.close();

        statement.close();

        con.close();

        }

        }

        again i created DSN in control panel->administrative tool->add
        soo, there i checked for the connection too and even that was sucessful. nw i returned to eclipse Ide and tried to run the code

        getting the below errors

    In Version 32-bit or 64-bit We have to add 6.0,6.1,7.0. In install oraparam. Otherwise it’s should give error.. In advance version we don’t need to edit this?

    • windows7bugs says:

      Hello Oracle DBA
      We didn’t quite understand your question. Are you asking whether you need to change the oraparam file for 11g and later versions to install on Windows 7? If yes, no, there is no need to change any parameters for 11g installations. We always tested the oracle databases against 64bit of Windows only.

      Please elaborate your question, so that we may able to answer your more satisfactorily

    I am also facing the sane problem. But I didn’t find out as you mention the path. So i change in :oraparam ;to add 7. So it is OK or it’s not working problem n getting me error?

      Hello ora_dba

      Hello dba Depends upon the database version. This post deals with 10g Rx, if you are using Oracle database 11g, the installation parameter doesn’t require the hacking explained with the post.

    hi ,

    i am using oracle 10g , developer suite 9i . its working fine in windows xp system. i have a problem in windows 7 32 bit system. i changed the jvm.dll file and after changing i could get the form seen, but am not able to type anything. suppose i type 1 in login screen (username) , it appears after some scrolling of mouse repeatedly. it looks like some thing is blocking in ie . i use IE 9. how do i resolve this issue.

    thanks in advance

      • lakshminarayan says:

        thanks for the immediate reply. i think i haven’t posed the problem properly. i have not installed oracle10g and developer suite in windows 7, but only in the server (linux) and only access the forms and reports through url in windows 7. i could get connected to the forms , but i am not able to login since the keppad and mouse is not getting activated. i am not sure if any pop up blocker or any settings in IE is required to resolve this. Based on some forums instructions i did uncheck “enable third party browser extensions” in tools >> advanced option . yet its not working. pl let me know any solutions

      • windows7bugs says:

        Hi
        So you are using application server to port the application basically. If you are on Oracle application server 10, then you must consider upgrading the java elements for the server, allowing JRE instead of jinitiator, which is supported by the IE9.
        As a workaround solution, what we can suggest is, finding a copy of Firefox 3.5 (Specific) and installing it on Windows 7 in order to access the application properly. The jinitiator is not anymore supported by latest version browsers. Please make sure that you will not let Firefox to upgrade to latest version, once installed :)

    HI,

    i did try with firefox 3.5 . it asks for plugins and it does not get installed. the cursor movement is giving the problem. i press a key and then scroll the mouse 2-3 times then the letter appears. i am not sure if i am explaining it properly. pl do help me out

    • windows7bugs says:

      Hello there
      Just noticed your comment. If you installed jinitiator prior installing firefox 3.5, please uninstall jinitiator and re-install with advanced option. There you will able to select java for additional browsers.
      Try and let us know whether it loads properly with firefox 3.5 (SPECIFIC)

      • windows7bugs says:

        Hi Abdul Do let us know the following

        your PC has a static IP address? Did you “ignore” any of the warnings during the installation of 11gR2? Did you try SET ORACLE_SID= and SET ORACLE_UNQNAME= prior accessing the OEM?

        Keep us informed :)

        It was our first attempt with 11g R2, we will post a detailed installation instructions soon with our blog :)

        regards, admin

    I remember i did not noticed any errors during 11gR2 installation. Yes, i set ORACLE_SID but i have not set any ORACLE_UNQNAME prior OEM installation.

    Hi, Thanks for you post..I am trying to install Oracle on Windows 7. I have followed similar steps that you have mentioned but while installing i am getting the following error.

    OUI-25031:Some of the configuration assistants failed. It is strongly recommended that you retry the configuration assistants at this time. Not successfully running any “Recommended” assistants means your system will not be correctly configured.
    1. Check the Details panel on the Configuration Assistant Screen to see the errors resulting in the failures.
    2. Fix the errors causing these failures.
    3. Select the failed assistants and click the ‘Retry’ button to retry them.
    INFO: User Selected: Yes/OK

    Can you pls let me know what is reason for this cause? do i have to set up anything before starting installation.

    Thanks!

      Hello Amit

      You didn’t mention which product you are trying to install. The compatibility mode is for developer suite 10g. For Database you don’t need to change the compatibility. Please get back to us with details like what OS you are using, which Oracle product you were trying to install etc.

      Regards,

      Admin

    from wer could i download oracle 10g????
    from oracle.com m not able to dwnload…

    • windows7bugs says:

      Unfortunately you will not able to download the 10g database from Oracle repositories. The lowest available version would be 11g. Well don’t get discouraged, there are many file sharing sites providing installation sources for 10g, just google around :) and all the best

    Hi,

    Two months ago I managed to install Oracle Developer suite 10g on Win7 32bit on my laptop.

    I had to make some workarounds – e.g. compatibility changed to Win XP during installation, then installing JRE 6 instead of JRE 7 and replacing jvm.dll in JInitiator folder, to be able to run the forms,etc – in order to be able to run properly the forms in the Forms Runtime module.

    But one friend of mine is trying now to run Forms 10g (in Forms Runtime module) on a Win7 64bit and he’s facing same problems that I had. Trying to apply same changes as I made, on Win7 64bit didn’t work entirely. He can open Forms builder and build/change a form, but he can’t run it in the Runtime module, for tests/debug.

    Both of us are using IE 9 and JRE 6 (me JRE 6.21, he JRE 6.22 – but I suppose it doesn’t make any difference)

    Could someone manage to install and run (in Runtime module, locally) the Forms 10g on a Win7 64bit configuration?

    Any idea of what can be done is appreciated.

    Thanks,
    Mary

    • windows7bugs says:

      Hello Mary
      The methods what you have adapted were not really required to run the forms (10g). I would suggest, your friend should uninstall the complete 10 developer suite, and do a fresh installation of the product. If he or she is using multiple Oracle products like legacy development tools (Forms 6i) and Oracle database in addition to the developer suite 10g, follow the below sequence

    • Install Oracle Developer 6i Suite (Follow our posts)
      Install the Oracle database (Follow our posts)
      Install the Oracle developer suite (Follow our posts)
    • Once the developer suite is installed, configure the forms instance to use JRE instead of Jinitiator. Please note, if your friend is going to use JRE 7, we have additional posts explain a “how to” which is not straight forward because of the changed JRE security elements

      Further, while reporting an issue, please mention the specific errors/error numbers or text(s), so that we can assess the situation better.

      We may able to further assist your friend, through a Teamviewer session. If intested, you can shoot a mail to w 7 b u g s at g m a i l d o t c o m

      regards,

      for Windows7bugs

    Hi Rajesh,

    Sorry for my late reply, it’s because the Easter holiday, I didn’t meet my friend this period and we couldn’t work on this subject.
    We checked today, there is no firewall or antivirus active on his machine.

    And I eventually managed to solve it somehow, but there is still a small problem.

    First, what I’ve done:
    1. I made the following changes in formsweb.cfg:
    #baseHTMLjinitiator=basejini.htm
    baseHTMLjinitiator=basejpi.htm
    #jpi_classid=clsid:CAFEEFAC-0014-0002-0006-ABCDEFFEDCBA
    jpi_classid=clsid:CAFEEFAC-0016-0000-FFFF-ABCDEFFEDCBA
    #jpi_mimetype=application/x-java-applet;jpi-version=1.4.2_06
    jpi_mimetype=application/x-java-applet;jpi-version=1.6

    2. I figured out that Win7 has actually to IE versions installed, one on 32bit and the other on 64bit. Of course that I didn’t pay attention until now that by default the Forms Builder uses the default IE version which is 64bit.

    I changed the browser in the Forms Builder’s preferences, to use the 32bit version (C:\Program Files (x86)\Internet Explorer\Iexplore.exe) instead of 64bit (C:\Program Files\Internet Explorer\Iexplore.exe), and now it works.

    But anyway, has a very strange behavior: it only calls the servlet and run the form on the third try. I mean, you have to press the “Run form” button 3 times to actually start the servlet. First 2 times it opens a blank IE window with a strange URL, like this: “http://127.0.0.1:56068/pWXVteG1xndQlTaWQQWfhQk6Q7x1xuQ1qspIrWFR1NukID7P” (the port is different each time) and then only the third time it opens a IE window with the right URL (http://localhost:8889/forms/frmservlet).

    I searched on net for some information about how actually works that “run form” module, what settings is using and how it builds that strange URL before calling the servlet, but I couldn’t find anything yet :( I’m not sure if is related with the OC4J instance or not, I have the feeling that it can be.

    If you have any clue, maybe you can help me with this.

    Anyway, this is a small problem, my friend can live with it, as long as he can eventually run the form locally for debug.

    Thanks,
    Mary

      Hello Mary
      Developer site 10g is 32bit, I believe what your friend has installed. You installed 32bit JRE, what is supported by both versions of IE

      Now, your version of IE could be problematic also. Do a reset of the browser, uninstall and reinstall JRE, such kind of activities will be invoiced into figure out what is actually wrong.

      Sometimes, you may even have to format and reinstall the complete stuffs to get rid of such annoyance :)

    • windows7bugs says:

      Hello there
      As we said with our post, it is almost impossible to install 10.1.x.x version of Oracle database on Windows 7

      You may install later versions following our post and instructions.

      Regards,

  • […] Windows 10 (TP), the shortest answer is yes and as usual the earlier hacks what we specified with http://windows7bugs.wordpress.com/2010/02/18/install-oracle-10g-onward-database-developer-on-windows&#8230; are still valid for the installation on Windows 10 […]
