Oracle BI 11gR1 Client Tools Installation

One of the major pain points with OBIEE 11g was the installation. As a developer, one has to install the whole suite to be able to work with the systems. Even if a company has development environment setup in a data center, all the developers had to install  the whole suite on their local machine to be able to do any modeling.
As we know the install is not trivial, and takes up a lot of disk and process space.
OBIEE 11g Client Tools

Recently Oracle released the "Client Tools" Only installation package which will allow developers to install the following components:

The install is pretty simple and only asks a couple of things - the install directory and the place you want your shortcut icons to reside.

When complete, you can run the "RPD Administrator tool" and a "Job Manager" on your local machine without having the whole OBIEE deployed.

There is no 64bit support for this package.
