Insalling Oracle 11gR2 on Windows 7 64Bit Enterprise Fails On Pre-requisite Checks


  • When I try to load Oracle 11gR2 64Bit on my PC with Windows 7 Enterprise 64Bit, it does a system check to make sure my PC is "acceptable".  All tests fail with an error message like

    Physical Memory - PRVF-7531 : Physical memory check cannot be performed on node "PaulK_PC"

    PaulK_PC is my PC.  The recommended action is

    Ensure ability to access the node specified and view memory information.

    According to the Account Manager, my account is an administrator.  I also right-clicked the Oracle setup.exe file and selected "run as administrator".  Same result.

    I have enough ram and enough disk space for installation.

    I downloaded Oracle from their website for a database class, so I have no customer support options.

    Any help is appreciated.
