OBIEE with Oracle 11g in Windows 7

As I mentioned in my earlier thread that there were some problem that I have encountered during installation of Oracle 10g which I initially thought to be due to Windows 7 new Admin security related features which stopping Windows 7 while creating TNS service and Database service during cloning the DB copy . This is one problem area which stopping me to setup OBIEE environment with proper and more or less up to date DB version . That is why I rely on installing the portable mini copy of Oracle DB i.e OracleXE .However couple of features not available in this version i.e. DB table partitioning etc . So think of to download Oracle 11g ( from OTN  for Microsoft Windows (32-bit) (1.7 GB) .

Strange the entire installation is pretty cool and fast (comparing 10g installation) . One more thing I notice is that there are no Compatibility issue with NT 6.1 kernel of Windows 7 during setup process.So finally I have something in hand to experiment about , at least from  DB perspective . Also I keep my earlier installed Oracle XE copy and put the TNS off .So it is also there but kept in cold standby mode.

Below is glimpse during installation process….
