I have a problem in installingthe oracle database in windows server 2003 environment, when I clicked the installer it always says "...\setup.exe isa valid, but is for a machine type other than the current machine". I also try to install other version of oracle such as oracle but I got the same error. Please help me to solve this problem, thank you in advance.

is this 32bit vs 64bit, can you check versions of windows and oracle? – BoyMars Nov 21 '11 at 9:04
need more details about the OS you are installing on – Jim B Nov 21 '11 at 19:18

The error that you're getting tells me that you're trying to install a 64-bit program on a 32-bit operating system.
