That would kind of invalidate all previous attempts.

Let's start at the beginning:
- did you create an instance, called "ORCL", or is it still "XE"? (You did tnsping XE - hence the question...)

  • can you: -- open a command prompt ("DOS box") -- type "set oracle_sid=orcl" -- type "sqlplus / as sysdba" both times without the quotes.

Post the results of that.

I never had to install a loopback adapter on XP (btw - which version of XP do you use?!?).
