RE: No TNSListner service after intall 8.1.7 on Win 2k

think Networking services means TNSNAMES/SQLNET.ORA stuff (like a client install).
could do a custom install (I think) and just install TNS Listener, and not the starter database.

  I am g<FONT color=#0000ff
  face=Arial size=2>etting a little closer to figuring out what is going on. I   did mis-state the type of install I did first. It was minimal installation   without the starter
<FONT color=#0000ff face=Arial

  size=2>database. This did NOT create a listener service. However it clearly   states it would install networking services. 
<FONT color=#0000ff face=Arial

  did a 2nd TYPICAL install and it did create a tnslistener   service.
  soon as I get time/ambition/curiousity I will do a 3rd install WITH starter   database to see it that will create a listener service.
<FONT color=#0000ff face=Arial

  really do not want a starter database installed to get a tnslistener service   but I could always delete it if I do not want it(Kldugy)!!!

    Hi Rick,
    I ran into this as well.  I
    figured I didn't need a listener on my w2k box because everything was going     to be local.  However I couldn't connect via sqlplus gui without a     listener (no listener error - maybe because I am specifying the sid).      I guess it's just another difference between Oracle on windows and Oracle on     Unix.
    If I remember right (it's been
    soooo long) when you connect in Unix with the $ORACLE_SID as part of your     env, you can do so without @. If you do it with the @, it looks for a     listener.   When connecting via a windows gui, you are specifying     the sid.  I'm guessing it's doing something similar to the @ in the     background.  The cmd window connects without the @ because it's in the     environment.
    By the way, how do you display an
    environment variable in Windows?  I thought it was echo %ORACLE_SID%,     but that doesn't work.  Anyone?
    Again I may be pre-coffee.

      Hi All, 
      I did a typical installation of Oracle 8.1.7 on 
      Win 2k. It appears to have installed 
      Ok.  I can use srvmgrl -> create database -> etc. 
      However when I try to use worksheet I get no 
      listner. I should not need one from the 
      server. Anyway the install did not create service <FONT 
      face=Arial size=2>to start the listener.  All other installs I have 
      done on NT always created a tnslistner 
      service. This in my first install on Win 2k. <FONT face=Arial 
      size=2>Anyone have any ideas on why service did not get created and how to 
      Thanks <FONT face=Arial
