      I just successfully installed OBIEE 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)

      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.

    12. Atul Kumar says:

      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.
