This section covers the Windows installation tasks: determining operating system prerequisites, obtaining the installation files, performing the installation, and testing out your installation. We cover the equivalent Linux installation instructions later in this chapter.

Windows Prerequisites

In addition to the general Oracle Database XE requirements listed earlier in this chapter, there are some Windows-specific requirements. First, you must be using a recent release of Windows included in this list:

  1. Windows 2000 SP4 or later 
  2. Windows Server 2003 
  3. Windows XP SP1 or later

In addition, you must install Oracle Database XE logged in as a user in the Administrators group.

Downloading the Installation Files

Navigate to the Oracle Web site download area for Oracle Database XE, http://www.oracle.com/ technology/software/products/database/xe/ index.html, and follow the links to download the Windows version:OracleXE.exe. Registration for Oracle Technology Network (OTN) is required, but free, and gives you access to many other resources onhttp://otn.oracle.com.

Note  If you will be administering Oracle Database XE and developing applications from other workstations, you need to perform a client installation after the server installation is complete. You install the client installation file,OracleXEClient.exe, on each remote workstation that needs to access Oracle Database XE outside of a Web browser.  

Please check back next week for the continuation of this series.
