Check complete. The overall result of this check is: Failed <<<< Problem: Oracle Database 10g is not certified on the current operating system. Recommendation: Make sure you are installing the software on the correct platform.


I’ve never liked Windows Vista and I thought that Windows 7 is the same operating system just with new popular name. But lately I’ve read a lot good comments about Windows 7.

Shortly after initiating installation of Oracle Client 11g
( installation stopped on prerequisite checks with error:

To workaround this problem I’ve decided to edit refhost.xml file adding entry for Windows 7.

Location of this file on my system:

This is excerpt from my newly edited refhost.xml file:

New lines are added at the end of this excerpt after . Notice version value=6.1.

With new refhost.xml file all checks passed and I was ready to try out is everything OK after installation.
