ORA-01119 and ORA-27040 Database file creation error


i am trying to create a database in Oracle 9.2.7 for Windows.

I am using Windows XP.

The used directory exists and i have write permission...

My Code for SQL:
create tablespace xxx_install
datafile ' c:\oracle\oradata\xxx_install01.dbf'
size 160M
autoextend on next 10M maxsize 1999M;

This is the error output:
ERROR at line 1:
ORA-01119: error in creating database file '
ORA-27040: skgfrcre: create error, unable to create file

Please help me to fix this.

Also you may want to use the Enterprise Manager console (GUI) to administrate your DB.
Are you sure you have permissions?
