Oracle Analytics Server Step by Step Installation in Windows | OAS 5.5 Installation in Windows

Surprisingly Oracle has released OAS for windows and I gave a try to install OAS 5.5 in windows to check out the look and features. This post has the steps how I have installed OAS 5.5 in windows.


1. Java JDK1.8 221 or Above. (Step by Step installation of Java)

2. Oracle Database 11g Release 2 and above. (Step by step Installation of Oracle DB 12c)

3. I would highly recommend to have minimum of 16 GB Memory and 50GB Disk Space to Install in your windows machine.

OAS 5.5 has 4 Major stages of Installation in Windows

1. Oracle Fusion Middleware Installation

2. OAS Platform Installation

3. RCU (Repository Creation Utility) 

4. OAS Configuration

Note: Interim FMW Patch is only for Linux and not required for Windows. 

Download the OAS 5.5 software's files and extract it in a folder.

JAVA_HOME=C:\Program Files\Java\jre1.8.0_271


Step1: Oracle Fusion Middleware Installation

Open the Command Prompt with 'Run as administrator' and go to JAVA bin location to start the fusion middleware installation. The whole OAS installation going to be done in command prompt with the same manner.

cd C:\Program Files\Java\jre1.8.0_271\bin
