Crashes Oracle 32bit client installation on Windows 64bit

Error:
During Oracle 12c 32 bit client installation on Windows 2012 server, Our Oracle client software is stopped in hung state.
We only close this windown. Its not installing Oracle Client on Window Server.

Cause:
1. Seems the Oracle Client software are not able to create/update registry for inventory location for 32 bit installation.
Open the REGEDIT setting in windows and check the following location:
Loc: \HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\WOW6432Node\Oracle
OR
Loc: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE -> SOFTWARE -> ORACLE -> inst_loc
Check the inst_loc parameer is correctly set for inventory location.

2. If first step solution is not work then you can skip the validation of OS check. You can try second option.

Solution:
1. Open registry REGEDIT Window then Go to location:
Loc: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\WOW6432Node.
OR
Loc: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE -> SOFTWARE -> ORACLE -> inst_loc
Create a new key with name Oracle and then go to Oracle.
Then create a new parameter inst_loc and assigned the value of inventory location “C:\Program Files (x86)\Oracle\Inventory”.
Then start the installation of Oracle client again.

2. Skip the Precheck during start the Setup process of Oracle Client by following command:
setup.exe -ignorePrereq -J”-Doracle.install.client.validate.clientSupportedOSCheck=false”
