Please press Enter to exit...

Solution

The installation interrupted due to incompatible version of Oracle database and the operating system (in this example, Oracle 10.2 on Windows Server 2008 R2). This mean, Oracle will not support (not certify) the installation in case you encountered problems.

In future, please always refer to the compatible check (certification check) on Oracle website before doing any installation or upgrade.
