I had downloaded the product from the oracle site, but the file that downloads won't run on my laptop.

- try download the one with "Universal" - Oracle Database Express Edition (Universal).
- as pointed in the link provided by sligthwv, run the setup with the special setting or right click the installer and choose to run as "Administrator". after doing the pre-requisite check, it might prompt that it fail. t
click the check boxes next to the errors. this will change them to say "User Verified." then click "Next" to continue.

i tried the 'universal' download... when i click on the downloaded file, it asks me to 'choose the programy ou want to use to open this file'...  OracleXEUniv

What program should be used... i assumed that if this was a true 'setup' it would simply launch into the install, but it doesn't.

The OracleXEUniv download file, under properties, shows it's description to be a setup launcher...
