Yes, I know that.But would you know why the listener doesnt start?

Can I connect to this DB using Toad without the listener? Or add tables etc to the database without ever starting the listener?

But do you know why the listener doesnt start?

In that case, should it not run flawlessly if I install when I am logged in as the local administrator? I did already try installing XE when I was logged onto the local box, and that caused the same issue.

Sorr, I didnt get that. Are you implying that I should log on to the network domain, or the local computer? Does Windows cache the login when I try to connect to the local computer, or the domain? How can I log in such that it will make it work?

> Just give it a try, and let us know when things do work.
Thanks. Thsi time I logged onto the local box as admin, and tried the same exercise you recommended.
Here are the results

C:\oracle\product\10.2.0\db\BIN>sqlplus / as sysdba Error 6 initializing SQL*Plus
Message file sp1<lang>.msb not found
SP2-0750: You may need to set ORACLE_HOME to your Oracle software directory

Do you know whats going on now? I did recheck the ORACLE_HOME and the Path. Is it that the settings have been installed for my network user and not the local user, as a result, missing some setup? Would this be solved if I installed while logged in as the local user? (note that I have tried this with XE unsuccessfully)

Why is that?

Again, dont I need I listener to be able to create tables etc? Also, the service OracleDBConsoleorcl doesnt start either. Isnt that the one that links to the Enterprise Manager? I cant access the web based enterprise manager either (http://localhost:1158/em)

> BTW how did you create an instance (the ORCL thing)?!?

When I installed it, there were options for 2 kinds of images - 1. basic install with no basic DB and 2-install with an instance. I picked the second one.

Please do answer my questions (pleading ignorance)
