How can I install Oracle 11g client?

I've been trying to install Oracle 11g (client) but I keep getting this error:
Environment variable: "PATH" - This test checks whether the length of the environment variable "PATH" does not exceed the recommended length.
Expected Value: 1023
Actual Value : 1028
List of errors: - PRVF-3929 : Adding the Oracle binary location to the PATH
  environment variable will exceed the OS length limit of [ "1023" ] for the
  variable on the node "KamalNuriyev-PC"  -
    Cause:  The installer needs to update the PATH environment variable to
            include the value "%ORACLE_HOME%/bin;". However, doing so will
            cause PATH to exceed the maximum allowable length that this
            operating system allows.  - Action:  Ensure that the sum of the
            lengths of your current PATH environment variable and that of
            "%ORACLE_HOME%/bin;" does not exceed the operating system limit.
            Restart the installer after correcting the setting for
            environment variable.
Has anyone seen this before? Do you have any ideas? Thanks so much.

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

The oracle database 11 g version 11.02.04 does not support Windows 10.

So, the error is misleading displayed because the Oracle does not support Win 10. I’m trying and get this error on a clean Win 10 machine. There is no way my PATH be larget than 5k characters.
You can check the cvu_prereq.xml file from OracleClient/stage/cvu to see that Oracle stops at Win 8.1. I haven’t found yet a workaround to support Win 10.

    The answer is in the error message. "PATH to exceed the maximum allowable length that this operating system allows". Check the pre-requisites and make sure it's for the right type of system as well (32/64 bit).
