Oracle service hangs on "Starting". Help!
Posted on 2003-11-10
i have Oracle Enterprise 8.1.6 installed on a WinXP machine and i created a local DB service with the Database Configuration Assistant, but the service won't start. when i go to Start>ControlPanel>.....>Services it just says "Starting" and nothing happens. No error message, no nothing, just says "Starting" and that's it. any ideas?
