The word Installed is shown in brackets for any component that is already installed in the current Middleware Home directory.
Note:The installer displays the estimated size of the installation for the selected components.
When you select or deselect components, the installation program checks for dependencies between the components and automatically modifies the list of selected components. For example, if you deselect Oracle WebLogic Server, the components that require Oracle WebLogic Server are also deselected.
After selecting the required components, press Enter, or type n and then press Enter.
JDK Selection prompt is displayed.
Select the JDK.
To add a local JDK, enter 1, and specify the location of the JDK.
To toggle the selection for an existing JDK, enter the appropriate number (2 or higher).

The installer searches for the required archive files. User interaction is not required here.
After you select the JDK, the files begin downloading to the specified storage directory. When the download is complete, the installation program verifies that the component archive files are downloaded successfully. If the installation program cannot verify the integrity of the download, an error message is displayed.
Once the verification is complete, the Install Eclipse Options prompt is displayed.
Specify whether you want to install Eclipse or use the existing Eclipse.
Note:This prompt is displayed only when you have selected Workshop as one of the components to be installed.
Press Enter to proceed to the next step.
Specify the directory in which you want to install the software. You can accept the default product directory (

If you specify a new directory, the installation program automatically creates it for you. Do one of the following:
Press Enter or type next (or n for short) to accept the current selection.
Enter the full path to the directory in which you want to install the software, and press Enter. The Install Node Manager as a Windows Service prompt is displayed.

You are performing a complete installation on a Windows platform,
You are installing on a Windows platform and you do not have Administrator privileges,
You are installing on a UNIX platform, or
You are adding components to an existing installation
Specify whether you want to install Node Manager as a Windows service.
Do one of the following:
Enter 1 to install node manager as a Windows service. Then, at the prompt, enter the listen port for the node manager, or press Enter to accept the default (5556). If the Listen Port number you specify is being used by a running application, the installation program prompts you to enter a different Node Manager Listen Port number. You are prompted to confirm your selection.

Choose Shortcut Location prompt is displayed.
Specify the folder in which you want to create the Start menu shortcuts.
Do one of the following:
Type 1 or press Enter to create Start menu shortcuts in the All Users folder. This provides all users registered on the machine with access to the installed software. However, only users with Administrator privileges can create shortcuts in the All Users folder. Therefore, if a user without Administrator privileges uses the Configuration Wizard to create domains, Start menu shortcuts to the domains are not created. In this case, users can manually create shortcuts in their local Start menu folders, if desired.
Type 2 to create shortcuts in your local user's Start menu folder. If you do so, other users registered on this machine will not have access to the Start menu entries for this installation.
You are prompted to confirm your selection.
Verify that your entry is correct, then type 1 or press Enter to proceed with the installation. Otherwise, type 2 to return to the previous panel, where you can modify your entry.
After you have verified your selection, the Installer displays a list of product components and JDKs to be installed, it also displays the estimated size of installation for the components displayed.
Press Enter to continue. The installation program begins copying the components you specified to your system.
Note:It is normal for the installation program to pause for a long time, especially toward the end. The installation program is still working while this occurs.
