If you want to install an Oracle database on a notebook, then it is essential that beforehand you install the MS Loopback adapter. This is a “virtual” network adapter.
After installation assign it a fixed IP-addres (192.168.99.99 for example) and you’re ready to install the Oracle Listener and Database instances.
You should not believe people who claim that Oracle doesn’t need it anymore. Maybe Oracle can do without the loopback adapter, but it will prevent a lot of issues that you would need to solve manuallly.
A computer on the Internet is identified by its IP address. In order to avoid address conflicts, IP addresses are publicly registered with the Network Information Centre (NIC). Computers on private TCP/IP LANs however do not need public addresses, since they do not need to be accessed by the public. For this reason, the NIC has reserved certain addresses that will never be registered publicly. These are known as private IP addresses, and are found in the following ranges:
- From 10.0.0.0 to 10.255.255.255
- From 172.16.0.0 to 172.31.255.255
- From 192.168.0.0 to 192.168.255.255
Well.. First of all I must say that I don;t know how legal all this is… On the other hand I do have all the licenses, but my extension supplier (InterAkt) has been taken over by Adobe and don’t provide support on the extensions anymore.
I really learnt to love them, I cannot do without them.
So here’s how it works:
- Create a directory-structure where you are going to store all the files to be transferred. For example
- D:\DW8Transfer\Program Files\
- D:\DW8Transfer\Program Files\Common Files\
- D:\DW8Transfer\windows\profiles\All Users\
- start regedit and export the key:HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE/Software/Macromedia
- Save the file as D:\DW8Transfer\macromedia.reg
- Copy the folder Macromedia from C:\Program Files\ to D:\DW8Transfer\Program Files\
- Copy the folder Macromed from C:\Windows\System32\ to D:\DW8Transfer\windows\system32\ (yes Macromed and not Macromedia)
- Copy the folder Macromedia from C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\ to D:\DW8Transfer\windows\profiles\All Users\
- Copy the folder Macromedia from C:\Program Files\Common Files\ to D:\DW8Transfer\Program Files\Common Files\
- Copy the contents of the D:\DW8Transfer\ folder into the C:\ drive of your new machine. All stuff should get copied into the correct folders on the target filesystem.
- Import the reg file on the target machine.
You should be able to run Dreamweaver now.
