Install JD Edwards EnterpriseOne™ 9.1 Standalone Demo (Oracle version) on your PC, with this step by step guide.
If you prefer to download a ready to go Virtual Machine, use this link: http://www.jdesource.com/?p=2044.
a. This version (according to the Oracle Docs) is designed to run on Windows 7 x64. Even you install successfully in another version of Windows 64, some business functions don’t work as expected, so, stay with Windows 7 64 and everything should work as expected.
b. Before you start with anything, turn OFF your Anti-virus, Firewall and Disable UAC (User Access Control). For security purposes you could enable again the Firewall and Anti-virus AFTER the installation was completed.
c. If you plan to install in a Virtual Machine, make sure that VM has between 2 and 4 GB of RAM. Some users reported that more than 8 GB causes the Oracle Client Install to get stuck on prerequirements step. Thanks Matthew for the info.
This procedure was a result from information that I gathered from Oracle Docs, tips from another users and “trial and error” tests. Suggestions and comments are always welcome.
We need the Oracle 11G R2 32 bit Windows Client. The JDE Stand Alone Client is still a 32 bit executable, and the installer package provided by Oracle simple refuses to go on without this piece of software. Use the following screens to select the correct files:
3. Unzip the V20606-01.zip file and run the Oracle Client Setup program:
4. Make sure to select Administrator option in the options list and click Next:
Note: In the previous version of this guide, we used the option Runtime, but this client install option maybe not installing all required .dll files that is necessary to run SQL queries in E1Local database instance, sometimes occurring an error similar to this, no matter the SQL tool you are using:
I fixed this problem changing the type of Oracle Client install to Administrator. Let’s use this option from now on.
5. In the next screen, leave English as selected language and click Next.
6. Leave the default options in the “Specify Installation Location” and click Next and them Finish. The installation should start. It’s time to take a cup of coffee, check the weather, etc. 🙂
If, for any reason that you haven’t turned OFF the Windows Firewall, you maybe see a screen like this:
7. Ensure to check “Private networks, such as my home or work network” and click Allow access. This kind of alert will appears again later, until you turn OFF the Windows Firewall during the install process. (This alert will appears again when you Turn ON the Windows Firewall after the install process. Just use the same answer here).
8. When the installation is finished, click the Close button and then reboot the computer.
9. Now, it’s time to install JDE Client itself. The install process is divided in two parts: the first install the Oracle Database, and the second the JDE Client. The four files that we downloaded earlier must be combined to make a working setup installation: extract the four files and you will have a folder structure like this:
10. Move the contents from folder V30798-01 to folder V30799-01. (Just select all files in the first folder, press Ctrl-X, select the second folder and press Ctrl-V. The famous Cut and Paste). The resultant folder will look like this:
11. Now, we must move the contents from folders V30807-01 and V30808-01 into the folder V30799-01\ThirdParty\ORACLE. The resultant folder will look like this:
12. If you prefer, you can rename the install folder to any name more easier to remember, for example: JDE_DEMO_V91:
13. Now, it’s time to start the first part of Stand Alone Demo Install. Double-click the InstallManager.exe, and them click EnterpriseOne Database Engine:
The install program will decompress the cab files:
It’s time to another cup of coffee!
Remember the question about the Windows Firewall? Yes, maybe you see that Window Alert again. Select the same options like before (ensure to check “Private networks, such as my home or work network” and click Allow access).
14. If everything goes fine, it’s time to reboot again. Click Yes to continue:
15. Now, it’s time to start the second part of Stand Alone Demo Install. Double-click the InstallManager.exe, and them click EnterpriseOne E910 Standalone Client:
16. In the Welcome Screen, click Next:
17. In the “Oracle License Agreement Screen” click in “I accept the License Terms and Export Restrictions” to continue.
18. Change the following parameters and them click Next:
19. Again, click Next:
20. Select Development and click Next:
21. We almost done! Finally, click in Install:
The install process will begin. It’s time to another huge cup of coffee!
22. If everything goes fine, you will see the “End of Installation Screen”:
23. Click in the Exit button.Then,in the Yes button. You can close the InstallManager window too, but, don’t reboot the computer yet.
24. Copy the file tnsnames.ora from C:\Oracle\E1Local\NETWORK\ADMIN to C:\app\Admin\product\11.2.0\client_1\network\admin (since this file was not there/no need to setup the listener, just copy).
25. Now, reboot the machine.
26. Lets test the new installation! If everything goes fine till now, we will be presented with the Demo Login Screen:
And, the Solution Explorer Window:
The NEW web interface:
27. Now you can turn ON again your Firewall and Anti-virus (don’t forget to properly answer the questions about permissions explained earlier).
If you try to run a report via WEB interface and receive the error: “Local submission is not supported from skinny batch versions/menus” it’s mean that report must be called from fat client instead from WEB. Open Solution Explorer, call BV and run it. Thanks Russ for the feedback.
