Installing Oracle Enterprise Manager 10.2 on Windows Server 2008

One would suppose that installing OEM on Windows Server 2008 would be like installing it pretty much in any other Windows environment; Oracle did a pretty good job of making it easy to install and run out-of-the-box under earlier versions of Windows, so it should be easier with the latest version of OEM and Windows, correct?
Wrong. There are a variety of reasons, and we’ll run through them in this exercise, as we install Oracle Enterprise Manager on Windows Server 2008 (NOT R2; this is important!).
As an added bonus, we’ll get the OEM repository database up to 11g.
