I installed WebLogic 12c on windows 10 last week and it was pretty smooth.
I went to the download page and downloaded the generic distribution.
There's a link to an install manual right below the download.
I downloaded the zip an unpacked it to a jar of the same size :-/
Some points of attention now
- start a cmd window as administrator
- make sure to use java from the JDK. If Java from JRE is in your path first this does not work
- Start the Oracle Universal Installer GUI as in the documentation, it will first check if your platform meets the requirements:
> java -jar fmw_188.8.131.52.0_wls.jar
During the install you can choose to install WebLogic, Coherence or both.Checking if CPU speed is above 300 MHz. ...Passed
Checking monitor: must be configured to display at least 256 colors. ...Passed
Checking swap space: must be greater than 512 MB ...Passed
Checking if this platform requires a 64-bit JVM. Actual 32 Passed (64-bit not required)
Just answered the basic questions and clicked finish when installation was done.
In the log file after install (C:\Program Files\Oracle\Inventory\logs) I find a few throwables from patch installations, but nothing worrying.
Maybe you have to explicitly click the "installation complete" menu item, because after I clicked finished the cofiguration wizardfor setting up a domain did not fire. In my cmd tool I went to
oracle_common\common\bin (in earlier releases this is
\common\bin) and ran
This launches the domain create/update GUI, another easy sequence of steps.> config.cmd
You can always return here, if after the installation you want to add additional templates to your installation:
At the end you get a link to the admin console at http://localhost:7001/console.
These days WebLogic by default starts DerbyDB, and I already have that from my Java EE installation, so I disabled that by editing my_domain\bin\setDomainEnv.cmd. Look for the DERBY_FLAG in this file and set it to false:
@REM Set DERBY_FLAG, if derby is available.
if "%DERBY_FLAG%"=="" (
if exist %WL_HOME%\common\derby\lib\derby.jar (
