Oracle Database 10g R2 is certified on Windows 2008 R2 with the stipulation that you run 10.2.0.5. However, the 64-bit Oracle base version (10.2.0.4) encounters an error when running setup.exe.
Modified the “Certified Versions” section of the oraparam.ini located in I:\_oratemp\database\install. Added “,6.1” to the end of the Windows parameter.
#You can customise error message shown for failure, provide value for CERTIFIED_VERSION_FAILURE_MESSAGE
Executed the Oracle Installer again allowing me to proceed with the installation.
Two more errors are encountered in OUI Product-Specific Prerequisite Checks, however you can check off in the checkbox and the status is changed to “User Verified” and OUI allows you to continue with the installation.
