In addition to the other points mentioned in your previous topics: take care in which forum you post your questions. This one has nothing to do with SQL.

This error indicates either a lack of memory or an incompatibility between Oracle version and your OS.

[oracle@localhost ~]$ oerr ora 12500
12500, 00000, "TNS:listener failed to start a dedicated server process"
// *Cause: The process of starting up a dedicated server process failed.
// The executable could not be found or the environment may be set up
// incorrectly.
// *Action: Turn on tracing at the ADMIN level and reexecute the operation.
// Verify that the ORACLE Server executable is present and has execute
// permissions enabled. Ensure that the ORACLE environment is specified
// correctly in LISTENER.ORA. The Oracle Protocol Adapter that is being
// called may not be installed on the local hard drive. Please check that
// the correct Protocol Adapter are successfully linked.
// If error persists, contact Oracle Customer Support.

I suspect that Oracle 8i is NOT supported on current Windows version.

post results from following OS commands

lsnrctl status
lsnrctl service
