I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Don't know if 9i is the same. But 11g is ok with a little modifying.

Before doing the mod
Checking operating system requirements ...
Expected result: One of 5.0,5.1,5.2,6.0
Actual Result: 6.1

After editing refhost.xml (unpacked_client_installation\win32_11gR1_client\client\stage\prereq\client\refhost.xml)
Add this between certified_systems tag

<!--Microsoft Windows 7-->
<OPERATING_SYSTEM>
<VERSION VALUE="6.1"/>
</OPERATING_SYSTEM>

Apologies for not closing this earlier. Client has changed Op/Sys to XP so action no longer required. Did try Arabia_vn's suggestion but without success - my thanks in any event.
