Upgrading Oracle to

I have to upgrade Oracle to on a test system Windows 2003. Database is not that complex. I never upgraded oracle previously but other than that I have very good oracle knowledge and working experience. Challenge at the moment is that I am tied up with lot of other works plus I have to do it urgently without having time to look on internet.

Please give me simple steps e.g. in Oracle 11g installation folder open setup.exe etc etc.

Depending on your knowledge:

If the database is small and not complex:
export the 10g database and import into an 11g database.

Other way:
Install 11g and run the Database Upgrade Assistant:

i wouldn't upgrade it on a win 2003.
2003 is out of support middle of 2015.

so you'd have to upgrade again in 2 years, and you already indicated you have little time

get a 2008 first and optionally check if your vendors support it
oracle supports it.

one thing i came across in all upgrades.
it's never quick and simple
