    Unanswered: Installation

    Guys pls. help me out.. Im new to this Oracle and i wanted to install it on my computer.. I started installing Oracle 11gR2 and I'm getting an error.. File not found D:\app\Simoun\product\11.2.0\dbhome_1\owb\external \oc4j_applications\applications\WFMLRSVCApp.ear.. Im not sure if your aware of this error but I wanted to confirm if 11gr2 is just a patch of 11g. I haven't installed 11g on my computer. Hope you could provide information concerning this matter..

    Thanks guys

    Consider an alternative.
    1) install VirtualBox on your system
    2) load a pre-configured VM that already has Oracle DB installed.

    Which Windows OS version, Name & Edition runs your system?

    what steps did you take prior to getting the posted error?

    You are guarenteed success if you simply Read The Fine Manual; Installation Guide found from URL below

    I could be mistaken, but it somewhat appears that what you tried to install was Application Server software & not the database server software.

    Usually Oracle produces an installation log file which should contain additional clues.

    Maybe you should just uninstall that software and install 11g Express Edition, which installs in several clicks. For a newbie, it will suit your needs for quite a long time.

    XE is more than enough for you to learn this Oracle.

    ouch i checked that oracle 11g express edition doesn't have 64bit for windows.. so much trouble for a starter but that's life.. i'll try littlefoot's suggestion.. XE then..
    it seems that XE only support 32 bit os. Guys i this won't be too much to ask. could you help me out with this. I really need to learn Oracle. I made effort to learn MySQL and SqL on my own and now i want to apply it on oracle..

    Well, I have Windows 7 Enterprise Edition 64-bit.
    I also installed Oracle 11g XE onto it.

    Guess what? It works just fine.

    I'm not sure what Oracle meant to say (on the Download page) with
    Does not work in Windows x64
