Once you finished downloading the installation source from Oracle, extract the files using any available unzip utility.
Copy all the folders from “win64_11gR2_database_2of2\database\stage\Components” to
“win64_11gR2_database_1of2\database\stage\Components” folder to avoid warnings about missing components during installation. Oracle should fix it, right?

Prior trying to access the database, make sure you changed the sqlnet.ora file following
# sqlnet.ora Network Configuration File: D:\oracle\product\11.2.0\dbhome_1\network\admin\sqlnet.ora
# Generated by Oracle configuration tools.
# This file is actually generated by netca. But if customers choose to
# install “Software Only”, this file wont exist and without the native # authentication, they will not be able to connect to the database on NT.
# SQLNET.AUTHENTICATION_SERVICES= (NTS)
NAMES.DIRECTORY_PATH= (TNSNAMES, EZCONNECT)
