Bear in mind that Oracle Applications 11i has certain dependencies that are specific to the M$FT Windows NT/2000 platform. Most notably: Visual C++ 6.0 and MKS Toolkit (both of which are additional cost items, totalling between $600-$1000).

There are several documents on metalink you may want to look at if you've had a failed install (on Windows... similar docs exist for Unix):

  DocID: 137200.1 "Checklist when OUI Fails for Windows"   DocID: 143976.1 "How to clean up a failed install of OA 11.5 on an NT Platform"

As far as how long the install takes:

  On Unix, once you've built your staging area, it can take upwards of 2-3 hours to do a full install of the VIS demo instance. Mostly determined by the speed of your system (CPUs/Memory/Disk).

  On NT, it can take a bit longer. Especially if you factor in the additional time required to install the prerequisites. (MS Visual C++, MKS Toolkit, GNUMake). And, of course, there are at least 5 reboots involved... (More if you're into patching things current...)
