    No Oracle version is ever supported on any Windows Home Edition OS

    You can access Installation Guide from Search and Download Oracle Database, Application Server, and Collaboration Suite Documentation
    You can lead some folks to knowledge, but you can not make them think.
    The average person thinks he's above average!
    For most folks, they don't know, what they don't know.

    Yes, I am sure; but I also could be wrong.

    Even when Oracle is "not supported, does not mean it does not work.
    Oracle is NOT supported on Ubuntu.

    Code:
    bcm@bcm-laptop:~$ uname -a
    Linux bcm-laptop 2.6.32-33-generic #72-Ubuntu SMP Fri Jul 29 21:07:13 UTC 2011 x86_64 GNU/Linux
    bcm@bcm-laptop:~$ sqlplus

    Use your WLAN IP address when configuring the listener.

    Thanx for the replay..

    So according to the Oracle Pre Installation requirements I have to move to Windows 7 Home Premium to Professional or Ultimate..
    What will be the outcome If i install oracle in Home premium ..???

    Has anyone have experience about that..??

    As i said in my first post
    I don't have a static IP because im using a HSDPA dongel to connect to internet and dynamic IP will assign there..

    By assigning a Static IP will i be still able to connect to internet..

    As far as I can tell (not from my own experience), you might be able to install Oracle on Windows Home Edition, but it simply won't work properly. It might not work at all, or it will work but fail occasionally or frequently, etc. Then you'll blame Oracle that it is no good (which wouldn't be true), and you'll switch to Excel or Access or MySQL or whatever else.

    Anyway: if you can't move to a supported Windows 7 edition, and if your computer is "strong" enough to run a virtual machine (such as VirtualBox), you could install it first, then install operating system (which is certified to work with Oracle you'd like to install) on your virtual machine and - finally - Oracle onto that operating system.

    Note that Oracle database could occupy a lot of space, need a lot of memory and use a lot of CPU. If you are installing it for your own amusement, perhaps you could install Oracle 10g Express Edition (XE) which is rather small and, I believe, would work somewhat better than the one you are talking about now.
