Installing Siebel on Windows 2000/2003

I have experienced some difficulties install Siebel on Windows platform, I started by trying the installation on Windows 2008 where I saw several articles confirm the supportability of this OS.

I all my trials has failed successfully :) the failure is because many reasons

The installation process itself is complicated (

1- Download Sources.

2- Extract Sources

3- Compiling the extracted sources into Executable

4- Installing the Siebel Components

5- Configure Siebel Components.

Actually, what makes the process complicated is not the number of the steps, the problem is it seems that the Java application used are not compatible with the latest OSs; although it works but if there is missing files, it never complains, it continue peacefully without telling you about it, and you stuck in other stages.

So, the best thing your can say here “if you start correctly, you will end successfully”, that’s the reason I am posting this, so start by 1st process and ensure it is successful by downloading the correct sources even though you have a limited connection and it may take days to download (19 GBytes for Siebel 8.0.0 and 13 Gbytes for Siebel 8.1.1).

 

So here is the list of files you (have to) download in case you want to have normal (not selective) deployment.

For Siebel 8.0.0 those are the files I have downloaded and lead to successful deployment.
