I had to do a install of 11Gr5 on a laptop with windows7 64 bit and ran into a couple of problems. The laptop was/is kind of messed up because I often use it to test and install new version of a product.
Problem: Installation freezes in the configuration step.
!DON’T look in the program files (X86) directory!
If you have a CLASS_PATH variable see that it points to the right directory, even better if you remove it (temporally) before install.
- Check that you haven’t got a _JAVA_OPTIONS variable set. (see: http://download.oracle.com/docs/cd/E21764_01/bi.1111/e10539/c4_installing.htm#CIHDJGIH)
