Hi there,

this is my first post here and I am not sure at all, whether I am asking my question in the correct forum and whether it has been asked before. I have googled for a while, but I did not find anything that I could understand and that helped me at the same time. I have to say that I am very new to this whole Oracle topic and that my knowledge tends to zero. So I appologize in advance. I also have to point out that I installed Oracle in german...

However, I want to describe my problem:

I have been using a really simple DB that I set up with Oracle XE on my local machine. Now, I downloaded and installed Oracle 11g Standard Edition ("software only" / no DB yet). Somehow, it does not work. Maybe, it has something to do with these two versions getting into a conflict with each other. I have disabled the OracleXE services, so now, when I start Windows, I have one process called "Oracle" (using ~300MB RAM). This seems to be the only service that has something to do with Oracle. I had to set the environment variables ORACLE_HOME and ORACLE_SID manually in order to even start the TNS-Listener (recall: I have no idea what the TNS-Listener actually does) successfully via command-line.

When I finally try to run "sqlplus "/as sysdba"", I get the error "ORA-12560". I really do not know how to describe it any better. Therefore, I just copied the content of a few files:

>Now, I downloaded and installed Oracle 11g Standard Edition ("software only" / no DB yet)
without any DB sqlplus has nothing to connect to.

both OS Services for the database & listener need to be started & running before the Oracle DB can be started.

consider to actually read & follow the INSTALLATION GUIDE

More than one Oracle product can exist on the same system; pay attention to choose a different Oracle Home (i.e. a directory you install it into - put each of them into its own directory). Apart from that, you should really follow the Installation Guide. If there's something you don't understand, come here and ask; I'm sure someone will respond.
