How to Install Oracle 18c on windows?

Unzip the bundle file.

Before starting Oracle database 18c installation we need to unzip the downloaded bundle file on the selected location where you want to store the database binary. In the case of oracle universal installer of 18c, it will take the location of its setup file and set it as ORACLE_HOME location.

Start the Installation.

To start the oracle 18c installation you should have Administration privileges. so find the “setup.exe” file inside of your bundle file and right-click on it and select run as administrator.

Note:- If Universal Installer did not open that means there is a problem in extraction, you should extract it manually, just double click on bundle file and select all files then drag these files in ORACLE_HOME directory. For more details, you can watch my YouTube video.

Once Oracle Universal Installer is open then just follow all step as per your requirement.
