Does anyone know what version of Oracle I can install on Windows 7

I have tried several times to install Oracle 10G on Windows 7. I thought I had installed 10.2.0.3. But nothing works. Can someone tell me how to install and what version of Oracle to use?

I've installed Oracle XE on both 32bit and 64bit Windows 7.  XE is 10gR2  (10.2.0.1 to be exact)

I've also installed 11gR2 on 32bit Windows 7

Do you need to run 10g? Can you try 11g installer?

So long as you understand that Oracle doesn't support the 10g client on Windows 7, you can pass the -ignoreSysPrereqs parameter to the installer, i.e.

Runinstaller -ignoreSysPrereqs

You would be better off with Oracle 11G

also, regardless of which install you try next.  can you be more specific about what isn't working?

When you do X -what happens?  nothing? system hang? error message? keyboard catches fire? etc

I downloaded Oracle 10.2.0.3 and it installed. I thought that was a patchset number not a regular base installation. But on Oracle website it was recommended. I created a database during the installation. But when I try to log into the database I get an error sql plus not recognized as an internal or external command, operable program or batch file.

when I open up the services I see that the only Oracle service running is the database. I tried starting all the other services and they keep giving errors that it could not be started and Error 1067: The process terminated unexpectedly.

I don't have a problem trying Oracle 11G.
