Part 1 : Extracting files and arranging them

Once you have finished downloading the above files you need to extract them and sort correctly. Firstly create a folder in your hard drive, say, “JDE-files”. Extract all the zip files, namely “V31550-01.zip”, “V31553-01.zip”, “V31551-01.zip” and “V31552-01.zip” in thefolder you just created.

If you are done with extracting, you will see that you have 4 folders in your directory with the names same as that of the zip files. Now “V31550-01″and “V31553-01” contain the client files whereas “V31551-01” and “V31552-01” contain the database files.

Once you are ready with all the files, here’s what you are supposed to do :

  1. Go to “V31553-01” folder, select all files and folders by pressing Ctrl+A.
  2. Press Ctrl+X to cut the files
  3. Go to “V31550-01” folder and paste all the files and folders by pressing Ctrl+V
  4. Now go to “V31552-01” and select all files by pressing Ctrl+A. These are all the database files, in cabinet format.
  5. Press Ctrl+X to cut the files
  6. Go to “V31551-01” folder and paste all the files by pressing Ctrl+V.

So now folders named “V31552-01” and “V31553-01” are empty.

Proceed further as follows :

  1. Go to folder “V31551-01” and select all files by pressing Ctrl+A.
  2. Press Ctrl+X to cut the files
  3. Go to folder “V31550-01”
  4. Open folder “ThirdParty”
  5. Open folder “ORACLE”
  6. Paste the files here by pressing Ctrl+V

So by now only “V31550-01” contains all the files and “V31551-01”, “V31552-01” and “V31553-01” are all empty.

Cut the entire folder “V31550-01” and paste it directly in the root directory (“C:” Drive) so that you have “V31550-01” folder locatedi in your C drive.

Rename the folder from “V31550-01” to “Standalone_9.10” to follow Oracle’s naming convention.

You can delete the old “JDE” directory you had created as it does not contain data anymore.

If you have followed all the steps correctly till now then you must have the database files located at “C:\Standalone_9.10\ThirdParty\ORACLE\”

Part 2 : Extract-Install-Cut-Paste with Oracle Database

Let us proceed with the installation of Oracle Database.

Extract the Oracle Database 11g Release 2 Client (11.2.0.1.0) for Microsoft Windows (32-bit) file you downloaded, for me it was “V20606-01.zip”.

Browse to the “client” folder in the extracted files and folders.

Run as administrator the “setup.exe” (How to do it? Right click on setup.exe and click on “Run as administrator”).

A window with pop up where you are supposed to select “What type of installation do you want?”. Choose “Administrator” andhit Next.

Next choose the language english (it will be already selected) and hit Next.

Next you will need to specify Oracle base path and Oracle software location, keep them default (unless you have a problem with that) and click Next.

Click Finish.

You will see the installations happening and then you will get a message “The installation of Oracle client was successful.”, click “Close”.

Part 3 – Installing EnterpriseOne Database Engine

Follow these steps :

  1. Go to your Standalone_9.10 directory
  2. Run as administrator “InstallManager.exe”
  3. Click on “EnterpriseOne Database Engine” in the JD Edwards Install Manager
  4. Installation takes quite a few minutes and has no prompts for you, so you can sit back and relax for a while.
  5. Once the installation is complete you will be prompted with a Reboot prompt. Click on Ok to reboot the machine.

Part 4 – Installing EnterpriseOne Standalone Client

Follow these steps :

  1. Go to your Standalone_9.10 directory
  2. Run as administrator “InstallManager.exe”
  3. Click on “EnterpriseOne E910 Standalone Client” in the JD Edwards Install Manager
  4. Oracle Universal Installer will open where you will need to click on “Next”
  5. Accept the “License Terms and Export Restrictions”
  6. Under “Specify Home Details” keep the default values as it is and click “Next”.
  7. Under “Package Selection” keep the default values as it is and click “Next”.
  8. Under “Install Mode” choose “Development” and click “Next”.
  9. You will shown the install Summary where you can click “Install” to proceed with installation
  10. At the end of installation you will see a EnterpriseOne Development Client installation successful message.
  11. Click Exit and confirm by clicking Yes.

Part 5 – Final Step

You will now have a directory named Oracle in your C drive.

Go to C:\Oracle\E1Local\NETWORK\ADMIN\

Copy tnsnames.ora file.

Go to C:\app\jdedemo\product\11.2.0\client_1\network\admin

Paste tnsnames.ora file here.

Run EnterpriseOne Solution Explorer

Just go to your Desktop and open EnterpriseOne Solution Explorer.

Enter username as “DEMO” and password as “DEMO” (without quotes)
Voila! You have installed JD Edwards 9.1 Standalone Client Succesfully!

  1. After running the JDE E1 9.1 standalone demo fro several months without any issues, recently it seems to be corrupted. Clicking on the EnterpriseOne Menu option in the browser does nothing.

    The only thing I can think of that may be a factor is my regular Windows Update with occasional .Net Framework updates and occasional Java updates. This was no issue though for several months of running the demo.

    I have uninstalled all and am ready to re-install from the download files I kept as backup.

    I would appreciate any feedback before proceed in case you are aware of an issue that caused my issue.

    1. Hi Brian

      Please check if javascript is allowed to run on the website.

      Add the address to your trusted sites in Internet Explorer.

      Make sure ActiveX controls are installed in your system.

      Try a different browser and see if you face the same issue.

      Thanks & Regards

    Thanks

    1. Hi Shadiya

      Yes, Oracle edelivery has changed the interface.

      You can download it by following these steps:

      Login to edelivery
      Select product as JD Edwards EnterpriseOne System Foundation
      Select platform as Mircosoft Windows x64bit
      Click on Continue

      In available releases unselect all, then select only
      JD Edwards EnterpriseOne Standalone 9.2.0.0 4 files and click on continue.

      Then download the necessary files.

      Thanks & Regards

  3. Using InstallManager, when I installed the enterpriseone database engine, I got error in my
    c:\oeeinstall.log

    37 1 09:07:44 W AlterDefaultProfile(): Failed to alter default profile. The command failed with error 1.. Attempt 1

    Do you have a clue why ?
