Installing Oracle7 DBMS on Windows 95/98

Insert the Personal Oracle7 CD into your CD-ROM drive. Open Windows Explorer and expand the CD-ROM drive(Figure 1.1). Run setup.exe and a splash screen appears (Figure 1.2).

Choose a home directory for the Oracle installation. This will become the default value for ORACLE_HOME (Figure 1.5). Oracle informs you that the autoexec.bat file will be modified to append the PATH environment variable (Figure 1.6). Click OK. Select Personal Oracle7 - All Products as the type of installation (Figure 1.7). Select the Standard installation type, which will install a starter database for you (Figure 1.8).

Oracle now prompts you for a location of the help files. If you would like to install them locally to the hard disk, select Hard Drive. Otherwise, choose CD-ROM (Figure 1.9). Oracle will begin to install files to your hard disk. When successfully finished, Oracle will prompt for a successful installation (Figure 1.10). Click OK and Oracle shows a reminder to reboot for changes to autoexec.bat (Figure 1.11).
