obiee 12c (18.104.22.168) installation is success in my windows 8 version (note it is not oracle recommended but for practice purpose i tried and able to install)
Generalizing the process of installation …
- 64 bit OS is must
- Loopback adapter settings..
- Make sure you unzip the downloaded setup files in the same machine where you’re intended to install obiee. I saw few issues when extracted file is brought from 2008 r2 to win8.
- Decide user with whom you’re proceeding with installations and ensure oraInventory access.
- Windows firewall set to Off
- JDK 1.8.0_51+
- oracle database; 22.214.171.124+; 126.96.36.199+

- Install obiee
- Set BI_PRODUCT_HOME env variable for ex: C:\oracle\product\Middleware\Oracle_Home\bi
- Configure obiee standard topology using 12c configuration assistant(you can alternatively run rcu part of <ORACLE_HOME>/oracle_common/bin to create schema required then sue configuration assistant to configure obiee)
