Oracle® 19c Database is the latest release of a widely adopted automation database in the market and enterprises. Stability is an important element of the Oracle Database 19c component of the Oracle Database 12c (Release 12.2) family of products. In this two-part blog post series, I cover installing and upgrading version 19c.
In part one, I focus on installing Oracle 19c on a Windows® environment. You might wonder if you can install Oracle DB 19c on the x32 bit Windows operating system, but the answer is no. Oracle 19c is compatible with only x64bit Windows.
Perform the following steps to install Oracle 19c on Windows:
To prepare for the installation, perform the following steps:
Download the software WINDOWS.X64_193000_db_home.zip from the following link: https://www.oracle.com/in/database/technologies/oracle19c-windows-downloads.html
Extract the zip file D:\app\product\WINDOWS.X64_193000_db_home.zip and set the extraction folder to D:\app\product\19.0.0\dbhome_1, which is the Oracle 19C Home directory.
After the zip extraction completes, execute D:\app\product\19.0.0\dbhome_1\setup.exe and perform the following installation steps.
Set Up Software Only radio button because you want to install the
software without creating an Oracle database. In my case, I already have an Oracle
database version 11g.
Single instance database installation radio button because you’re

Oracle Database 19c is available in the following editions:
Select the radio button for
Enterprise Edition to install the Enterprise edition.
If you want to install the standard edition, then select
Standard Edition 2.
The Enterprise edition has additional costs compared to the Standard edition,
and the choice is up to you.
Use Virtual Account radio button. The Oracle home user can be a
Windows built-in account, virtual account, or a regular (non-administrator)
Windows account. If you specify an existing user as the Oracle home user, the
Windows user account you specify can either be a Windows domain user or a Windows
As an administrator, do not create a Windows user account if you use a virtual account or a Windows built-in account during the installation. For example, if you specify a non-existing user for the Oracle home user, the Windows user account you specify needs to be a Windows local user. The Oracle installer creates this account automatically to run the Windows Oracle services for the Oracle home.
Specify the location of the Oracle base. In this case, I selected D:\app. Again, you can change this directory at your convenience or opt for the default one.
The installer verifies all the prerequisites. If there are any errors, try to readjust the minimum installation requirements as follows and restart.
You can install Oracle Database 19c on the following Windows x64 distributions:
Note: You must update your operating system before starting the Oracle Database installation to avoid any issues with Oracle 19c.
Click install if no error occurs.
The installer shows you the summary, including the Oracle base, Oracle software location, Oracle database edition, and Oracle home user.
The installer starts the Oracle 19c installation. If you get any errors during the installation, you need to fix them to complete the installation successfully.
The installer shows you the final successful page with the following output if no errors occurred during the installation.
With the help of this blog post, you can easily understand and follow the Oracle 19c installation steps in the Windows environment.
