Oracle Database 11g Release 2 Installation Steps on Windows

In this post I will describe the installation steps of Oracle database 11g Release 2 (32-bit) on Windows Server 2003 (32-bit).
- Download Oracle Database 11g release 2.
- Run the setup.exe

- Press Run button.

Provide your email address to be informed of security issues, install the product and initiate Manager.

Select any of the following install steps.

Oracle Database 11g Release 2 introduces a new option that enables you to specify the type of system on which the database is installed. If you are installing on a laptop or a desktop, then select the Desktop Class option; otherwise, select the Server Class option to install on a server. These options are available on the System Class screen.

There is no difference in the software that gets installed after you select any one option but the Desktop Class option installs a single instance database without the advanced configuration options.

Typical install configuration.

Installation Progress

Installation error
File not found C:\app\Administrator\Products\11.2.0\dbhome_1\oc4j\j2ee\oc4j_applications\applications\em\em.ear
File not found C:\app\Administrator\Products\11.2.0\dbhome_1\oc4j\j2ee\oc4j_applications\applications\em\em.war
File not found C:\app\Administrator\Products\11.2.0\dbhome_1\oc4j\j2ee\OC4J_DBConsole\config\system-application.xml
File not found C:\app\Administrator\Products\11.2.0\dbhome_1\oc4j\j2ee\\OC4J_DBConsole\config\system-jazn-data.xml

The above errors came because I didn't unzip the 2 files in the same folder.

Download the Oracle and unzip both files in same folder and then run the setup again.

Installation of Oracle Database was successfull.
