You can install Apps only on a server version of windows.

Pre Instalaltion Steps

Check System requirement:
Software Requirenet : like ar, ld, make, gcc, make, Xdisplay - (Unix), MS C++, MKS
Toolkit (Windows)
CPU : It depends on Size, no. of Users ... ( For Test Installation don't worry)
Memory : SGA, Concurrent Users ( Usually 2GB should be enough for testing)
Disk Space : 26 GB Application Tier and for database Tier (35GB Production DB,
65 GB for Vision DB )
Once prechecks are done create User ( Single User or Two user ), with Single user will install both application tier and database tier and for Two user user1(oramgr) will install & own Database tier & user2(appmgr) will install & own Application Tier. (If you don't knwo what is application or database tier please go through my previous post).
Install MS XML Parser 3.0 Service pack 4 (Only if you are installing Apps in Windows)
