Hi Suchit Shah

The log file says like that not telling the failures

Using paramFile: G:\database\install\oraparam.ini

Checking installer requirements...

Checking operating system version: must be 5.1 or 5.2.    Actual 6.1
                    Failed <<<<

Exiting Oracle Universal Installer, log for this session can be found at C:\Users\ADMINI~1\AppData\Local\Temp\OraInstall2012-05-03_09-33-40AM\installActions2012-05-03_09-33-40AM.log

Please press Enter to exit...

Follow below Steps :

modify the Oraparam.ini file located here

[Certified Versions]
# You can customise error message shown for failure, provide value for
Windows = 5.0,5.1,5.2,6.0,6.1

# Minimum display colours for OUI to run
# Minimum CPU speed required for OUI
# CPU = 300

Save the oraparam.ini file & then run setup again. Now all goes fine & got the oracle installed.

This is the error because of compatibility of executable with vista OS. to resolved this problem follow below steps

You have to go to > "control panel" > "programs" > under the "Program and features" > "Use an older program with this version of windows"

Run it and then select oracle exe , choose the OS which is compatible to your oracle exe "This could be Win XP",
then run.
