Oracle 8i Installation on Windows 7


  • Running the setup of the Oracle8i package results in no action from the Windows 7 OS.

    The program opens and asks to install but after you click to proceed it goes no further.

    There is nothing in the task manager basically no sign of the software at all. No error messages.

    Unfortunately our company has been very slack with upgrading its software and there are no signs of a willingness to change this.

    Compatibility mode has also produced no results.

    I am aware that Oracle is only looking to support version 11g Release 2 for Windows 7 but this doesn't help us right now.

    Does anyone know of a situation whereas Oracle 8i would be able to be installed. Any method would be appreciated.

    Kind regards,
