buy a proper operating system for it.

Other than that, this question has been asked on TR in the past.


Why anyone would want to put a database with the capability of Oracle on windows is hard to figure out. Put it on a home workstation/desktop version, is absolutely beyond me.

Guy in the above claimed to have a solution, others suggested 10g wiould be better as it's more recent, I personally wouldn't even waste my time trying. Even if it worked it would be crap.

PS they don't call it home for nothing. That means it's got a lot of manage your photo album type stuff on it, and the server stuff is crippled.

I wouldn't put anthing more than a development database server on Vista Business, never mind hom premium. It's not configured for it.
