Install Oracle Developer Suite 10g on Windows 7 (64bit)

Recently, I got a task to install Oracle Developer Suite on Windows 7(64bit), but there seems lots of hassles to achieve this goal. There is a thread on Oracle forum on that topic. Here I log what I did to get it installed on my Windows 7(64bit) with 8G RAM.
  • extract the setup files (version 101202) downloaded from otn.
  • right click the install\setup.exe property, set compatibility to Windows XP SP2
  • edit the virtual memory size to custom size from 1024m to 8000m, restart it
  • run the install\setup.exe
Hope this helps.
