Part of this series of posts: Oracle Database 12c on Oracle Linux 6

Step 1 tends to change a bit between versions of VirtualBox. While the basic steps are pretty close, when the Windows UAC popups appear and some of the dialog boxes change a bit. Basically we’re going to download the software and walk through the wizards clicking next and then download the extension pack. Below is the latest install that I did.

Open Windows Explorer and navigate to your Downloads directory and double-click the file you just downloaded. Note that it’s OK if the version number is different.
