We are pleased to announce the availability of Oracle E-Business Suite StartCD 126.96.36.199 (often just called StartCD 51). As the fundamental installation medium for EBS, the startCD is what you begin with when installing or upgrading to Release 12.2.

Yes, you must create a new stage area to use startCD 220.127.116.11. A stage area created with an earlier startCD will not work. This is because (as noted above) startCD 18.104.22.168 uses Oracle Database 12cR1 (22.214.171.124), while earlier startCDs used 11gR1 (126.96.36.199). In addition, startCD 188.8.131.52 uses a later patch set (184.108.40.206.0) of Oracle Fusion Middleware Web Tier Utilities than the 220.127.116.11.0 patch set used by earlier startCDs.
