Oracle 10 Client on Windows 7

This entry was posted by on Tuesday, 17 August, 2010 at

If you need the full Oracle Client on your Win7 machine, you are in a bit of trouble.

Windows 7 is internal windows 6.1 and the setup routine checks for windows 5, 5.someting and 6.0. So no Windows 7.

But there is a hack: turn off the system check with the flag -ignoreSysPrereqs

so running

setup.exe -ignoreSysPrereqs

form a cmd does the trick. You’ll have to overwrite the error later in the setup routine by clicking the failed checkbox.
