Recently I got Win-2000 system with 256 MB ram, 30 GB hard disk with no partition at home and want to install Oracle server to work on basic queries including oracle DB triggers/procedures/functi
ons by accessing built-in tables. I never installed Oracle anywhere. I should be able to create my own tables/triggers/procedures
. I went to http://otn.oracle.com/
and I got file of Oracle8i Personal Edition Release 3 Version 8.1.7 for Windows NT/2000 from URL http://otn.oracle.com/software/products/8i_personal/htdocs/winsoft.html
. The file name was nt817personal.zip (612,139,274 bytes). After unzipping that file, when I clicked on setup.exe, nothing is happenning, just mouse hover glass is coming for 10 sesonds and its doing nothing.
My question is what I have installed is right or not, if right why I could not install. Do I need to install from some other location in some other manner. Do I need to install client version too?
I would appreciate if anyone gets back to me soon.
Much thanks in advance,
