Has anyone successfully installed OBIEE on windows 7?

I tried the the recommendation and the install still failed. The setup.exe runs, but the message is received:

I just successfully installed OBIEE 10.1.3.4.1 on Windows 7 Home Premium edition 64-bit. Things to watch out for are:

1. Download JDK 1.6 u 16 320bit version
2. Define environment variable JAVA_HOME
3. Add 32-bit Java Home in PATH definition
4. change the OBIEE setup.exe compatible mode to Vista for all users ( Win XP 3 did not work for me)

Hi,
I tried installing OBIEE 10g on Windows 7 as you have suggested but am facing the following error

“The Installer is unable to run in graphical mode. Try running the installer with the -console or -silent flag.

Please suggest.

Atul Kumar says December 20, 2010

@Kiran29,
This error usually happens because of memory . See if you have enought free memory on system.

You could still install it in console (command line) mode.

Hi All,
I have installed OBIEE 10.1.3.4 on windows7 successfully it is working well.
But Java host services not starting if i try to start it’ll get stopped.Because the java jdk s/w it will install at program Files due to this reason Java host service not starting.
the above error is prgram Files having space.so better to avoid installing jdk at program files.
You’ve to create in anotherpath like below
C:\Java\JDK1.6..
