Last updated on OCTOBER 21, 2022

Applies to:

Oracle JDeveloper - Version and later
Microsoft Windows x64 (64-bit) - OS Version: 7


The Windows 64 bit JDeveloper 12c installer has been downloaded from OTN. The installer is executed by double clicking the downloaded file and it starts to unpack the files to prepare installation.

The below sequence occurs:

  1. Preparing the Installer (Oracle Installer) dialog shows.
  2. Then this window closes and nothing is seen, however Windows task manager shows JDeveloper installation is still running. If there is a chance, a splash screen may appear here.
  3. System check dialog comes up in a DOS window.
  4. Dialog comes up: "Error Launch: No such file or directory".
