Installing Oracle on Windows Vista
March 24, 2009 11:36PM
Has anyone managed to successfully install the Oracle that we got on the cd on Windows Vista? I havent tried yet because I've been reading that people are having issues. Does anyone have a tried and tested solution to this without using a virtual machine?

Also, I went on the Oracle website and I see there a Oracle 10g Release 2 ( Express Edition. Can this be used for our course? Its software requiments stated - One of the following 32-bit Windows operating systems: 1) Windows 2000 Service Pack 4 or later 2)Windows Server 2003 3)Windows XP Professional Service Pack 1 or later. Nothing about Windows Vista.

There is a specific version for Vista. Version

I have used it with both assignments, however, there are a few rights issues that you will run into. I cannot remember all the details but you will have to give the student user create view rights or something before question 5(I think) will work. You will also have one or two issues with later questions, all related to rights.

I ran the scripts on my laptop with XP and provided oracle; everything went smooth without the need to add the rights.

I chose to have both Vista and XP on my machine. So I boot into XP for Oracle . That way i did not have to uninstall my Vista.
