Install Oracle Database 11g Enterprise Edition Release 11.2.0.1.0 (64Bit) on Windows 8 Professional 64Bit

 

Environment

  1. Windows 8 Professional – 64Bit (i5 Processor, 8GB memory)
  2. Database 11g Enterprise Edition Release 11.2.0.1.0 (64Bit)

Important

Once you finished downloading the installation source from Oracle, extract the files using any available unzip utility.

Copy all the folders from “win64_11gR2_database_2of2\database\stage\Components” to

“win64_11gR2_database_1of2\database\stage\Components” folder to avoid warnings about missing components during installation. Oracle should fix it, right?

If your computer is a domain member, then

    1. Create a local user
    2. Add the user to “Administrator” group
    3. Logon as local user
    4. If you are installing Oracle on D:\ , right click and assign full rights to your account on that particular drive. Only applicable with Window7 and Windows 8

Start the installation, and you will be provided a warning. Refer the image below

warning1

Ignore it

Proceed with the installation

Ignore the update related warning also

warning2

Just follow the prompts and complete the installation. It should be a smooth sailing.

Prior trying to access the database, make sure you changed the sqlnet.ora file following

# sqlnet.ora Network Configuration File: D:\oracle\product\11.2.0\dbhome_1\network\admin\sqlnet.ora
# Generated by Oracle configuration tools.

# This file is actually generated by netca. But if customers choose to
# install “Software Only”, this file wont exist and without the native
# authentication, they will not be able to connect to the database on NT.

# SQLNET.AUTHENTICATION_SERVICES= (NTS)

SQLNET.AUTHENTICATION_SERVICES= (NONE)

NAMES.DIRECTORY_PATH= (TNSNAMES, EZCONNECT)

We will post more screen shots soon. Stay tuned!
