Oracle 10g Client on Windows 7

So we want use old sqlplusw, cause is light, fast than any sql developer for some admin duties, but wait! ORACLE baned this software since Oracle 11g, but no problem you can donwload from here 10.2.0.4 client. This client bring a compatibility problem with windows 7 for solve ….

important note:  i edited two files in the client , so u no need to follow this instrucctions.

simple way for avoid problems:

setup.exe -ignoreSysPrereqs

Other way…

For avoid the compatibility problem start setup.exe as Administrator but before that edit two files to configure teh windows version, in windows 7 is 6.1:

1- oraparam.ini

–Before  Edit
[Certified Versions]
#You can customise error message shown for failure, provide value for CERTIFIED_VERSION_FAILURE_MESSAGE
Windows=5.1,5.2

You must configure 6.1 for windows 7:

[Certified Versions]
#You can customise error message shown for failure, provide value for CERTIFIED_VERSION_FAILURE_MESSAGE
Windows=5.1,5.2,6.1

2- Edit file …\stage\prereq\db\refhost.xml adding next

<OPERATING_SYSTEM>
<VERSION VALUE=”6.1″/>
</OPERATING_SYSTEM>
final file:
<CERTIFIED_SYSTEMS>
<OPERATING_SYSTEM>
<VERSION VALUE=”5.1″/>
<SERVICE_PACK VALUE=”1″/>
</OPERATING_SYSTEM>
<OPERATING_SYSTEM>
<VERSION VALUE=”5.2″/>
</OPERATING_SYSTEM>
<OPERATING_SYSTEM>
<VERSION VALUE=”6.1″/>
</OPERATING_SYSTEM>
</CERTIFIED_SYSTEMS>

enjoy 🙂
