Why not? The following Oracle download page says:

Oracle Database 10g Release 2 (10.2.0.4.0)
Enterprise/Standard Edition for Microsoft Windows Vista x64, Windows Server 2008 x64,
Microsoft Windows Server 2008 R2 x64, Windows 7 x64

What are you confused about? If you want to download Oracle 10g onto your laptop, then you need to click on that link, then follow the instructions. Read the OTN license agreement, then click where it says that you accept the license agreement, then click on the link where it says, "Download the Complete Files" and follow the instructions. After downloading, you will need to unzip the files, then run the installer. During the installation process, it will check your computer to see if you have enough hard drive space and ram and so forth. You can check these things in advance if you want by checking the installation guide (2.) and the certification matrix (3.) I hadn't noticed before that according to (4.) after installation, you also need to download and install the patch set. You will need to have paid support in order to do that. If you want some things like the thesaurus used with Oracle Text, then you also need to download the "Companion Cd". Application Express can also be downloaded and works with Oracle 10g. It all depends on what features you want. Since you are installing the server, you do not need to install the client separately.

If you do not have paid support, then there will be a problem, since you cannot download the patch. Why not just download Oracle 11g and get the latest version? I am running Oracle 11g release 2 on Windows 7 Professional 64-bit on a laptop. Installation of 11g does not require a patch or paid support.

If you go to Oracle's main page (first link below), then click on downloads, then click on 11g, and so on, you eventually get to the last link, which is where you need to download win64_11gR2_database_1of2.zip and win64_11gR2_database_2of2.zip. The instructions are on the page. 11g is big, so it takes two zip files. I recommend that you use a download utility that speeds things up and allows for resuming an interrupted download. If you use Mozilla Firefox browser, then you can use the DownThemAll download utility that you can get from the Firefox website.

Why? Is your keyboard missing some characters?

There are various things that you can check to try to resolve the error. You can start by making sure the services are started and set to automatic. In your operating system, go to:

control panel -> system and security -> administrative tools -> services

Scroll down and look for any services that say Oracle, then make sure they are started and set to automatic. You will need to start the listener before you start the service. Look for names like OracleOraDb11g_home1TNSListener and OracleServiceORCL.

There should have been a log created during installation. It should have displayed the name and location of that log during installation and you should have noted it, so that you could check it afterward, otherwise you will have to search for it. If you can check that and post the contents, it may reveal some problems.

"File not found" does not sound good. That should not happen. It implies that either your download was corrupted or some permissions are lacking. When you install Oracle, you need to be logged into your laptop as an operating system user with administrator privileges. You may end up having to download the uninstaller, uninstall your partial failed installation, then download again, and try to re-install, making sure you are logged in as an operating system user with administrator privileges.

It looks like you are missing the main one. It isn't even there to be started. I would download the uninstaller, stop the services, uninstall, check to make sure that everything is gone, restart your computer, download again, making sure that you are using a good downloader like DownThemAll, then re-install paying close attention to all messages during installation and recording things like passwords and location of the installation log.

Oracle De-install Utility (11.2.0.1.0) for Microsoft Windows (x64)

Please see the instructions here:

http://download.oracle.com/docs/cd/E11882_01/server.112/e10897/software.htm#CACIDDCC

From an operating system command prompt (not windows explorer) in the directory that your deinstall.bat is in, type:

deinstall -home Oracle_home

replacing Oracle_home with the directory path of your attempted Oracle home directory. It will prompt you for some other things. It will usually display the default choices within square brackets. When in doubt, use the defaults. I found that I needed to run it twice to get rid of everything after I tried to install 11g on Windows 7 Home, before upgrading to Windows 7 Professional, then doing the installation again. If choosing certain options does not seem to remove everything, then on the next re-run choose different options.

Assuming that you have the directories correct, you should run:

C:\Users\Zuhair\Desktop\win64_11gR2_deinstall\deinstall\deinstall.bat -home D:\app\Zuhair\product\11.2.0\dbhome_1

I don't know. It would be best if you could somehow uninstall first. However, it can't hurt to try to do the installation again, after unzipping both files. It might install properly or it might at least make it so that you can uninstall, so you can start over. At this point, with nothing working, it can't hurt to try.
