I was wondering if anyone could outline the steps to install oracle Primavera P6 on Windows, including the Oracle Client that needs to be installed first.

I have installed the Oracle Database (11g) on another server, installed the Oracle Client on my Windows 7 machine (which will eventually be imaged and deployed to 30 computers) but I am unsure how to get the two to talk together. I know this needs to be done before it is possible to install the Primavera P6 software.

The Oracle Client on the PC/Laptop needs to have the TNS entry for the target database added first and foremost. Once you setup the entry and can access the Oracle database from your system then you run the primavera installer.

Have you setup all of the schema's in the Primavera database already? I'm just gauging what step I need to start the instructions with.

Hey J coreil, upon overlooking things I have actually decided to go with the Primavera Standalone install on our lab machines as no real shared resources will be needed. Thank you for the assistance.
