Install Oracle 10g (10.2.0.3 onwards) on Windows 10 (Technical Preview)

We know it is too early, still as usual we are kicking in once again trying to install Oracle 10g onwards databases on an OS that’s in the early stages of testing/improvements.

If you are wondering whether Oracle 10g (10.2.0.3 onwards) could be installed on Windows 10 (TP), the shortest answer is yes and as usual the earlier hacks what we specified with https://windows7bugs.wordpress.com/2010/02/18/install-oracle-10g-onward-database-developer-on-windows-7/ are still valid for the installation on Windows 10 TP

All you need to do is to add an entry to the refhost.xml file like following:

<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>
<!–Microsoft Windows 8–>
<OPERATING_SYSTEM>
<VERSION VALUE=”6.2″/>
</OPERATING_SYSTEM>
 <!–Microsoft Windows 10–>
    <OPERATING_SYSTEM>
      <VERSION VALUE=”6.4″/>
    </OPERATING_SYSTEM>
</CERTIFIED_SYSTEMS>

You may safely ignore the warnings (if any) and proceed with the Installation. Please note, as usual we warn you not to install unsupported databases on newer Operating Systems as you may risk with your valued data. Below, few screen shots from our installation attempt which was successful.

You will be prompted to install .NET Framework 3.5 (That includes .NET 2.0 and 3.0), and we suggest you install it for better stability of the database
