Shakespeare, I tried, but the install of the loopback adapter didnt work successfully. I went through all the screens to install, but it errored out after I selected the loopback adapter (Simply said that it could not install it successfully).

Thanks again. I will try that again.

Meanwhile, I tried a couple of different things, and with those changes, it gives me an entirely different error. I added an environment variable"ORACLE_HOME" to point to "C:\oraclexe \app\oracle\product\10.2.0\server" and another one for "TNS_ADMIN" that points to "C:\oraclexe\app\oracle\product\10.2.0\server\NETWORK \ADMIN". And now the error that I get is: Starting tnslsnr: please wait...

TNS-12560: TNS:protocol adapter error.

Am I doing something wrong, playing with the environment variables? Or are there other environment variables that I need that I am missing?

Thanks. Received on Fri Dec 28 2007 - 18:40:02 CST
