Living & Breathing in Web 2.0 Era

Oracle 11g on Windows 7 professional (32 bits)

I have downloaded two zip files for Oracle 11g release 2 from Oracle site as follows.

Unzipped ’em and ran setup.exe from \win32_11gr2_database_1of2\database\setup.exe and got zillion of file not found errors as follows.

–> \application\em.ear, \bin\db2gc\, \config\system-application.xml\

–> Template General_Purpose.dbc does not exist

–> Oracle Database Configuration Assistant failed

Anyway, after fiddling with some times, I found out that the two zip files I have downloaded, needed to combine together to solve file not found errors. So I copied win32_11gR2_database_2of2\database to win32_11gR2_database_1of2\database to merge two database directories and here is the login page for Oracle 11g r2 after a successful install.

A video that I found to show step by step but it does not say to combine two zip files if you download the the software from web.
