Unzip them in a single folder:

Copy all the bishiphome subfolders to a single install folder:

Check if you have a loopback adaptor installed, this provides at least one fixed ip-adress for your system:

Did you install on a laptop? How much RAM did you need to get it installed?

Thanks,

HI John,

I like the way you narrate the complicated things in a simple manner , keep it up ..
Well I have a question for you , The RCU which Oracle supplying is only for 32 bit.. Is there any way to get the RCU for 64 bit . Why means The RPD is opening in 32 bit but for 64 bit its not opening

Regards,
Rathina

@Rathina,

I have no idea, I always (mis)use a 32 bit virtual for that.
