Oracle Client on Windows 7

While installing the Oracle Client on Windows 7 64-bit we encountered an error regarding the Operating System Version.

We were able to modify: win64_11gR1_client\client\stage\prereq\client\refhost.xml

WAS
<!--Microsoft Windows Vista-->
<OPERATING_SYSTEM>
<VERSION VALUE="6.0"/>
</OPERATING_SYSTEM>
</CERTIFIED_SYSTEMS>

Added…above </CERTIFIED_SYSTEMS>

<!--Microsoft Windows 7-->
<OPERATING_SYSTEM>
<VERSION VALUE="6.1"/>
</OPERATING_SYSTEM>

And the install continued.
