can't install primavera 6 v7 database in windows 2008

hello,
I'm trying to install primavera 6 database on one of our servers running windows 2008.
i installed SQL 2008 express edition and then it turned out that primavera 6 is not supported by SQL 2008 so i downloaded Oracle 10g express edition and installed it.
now when I lunch the Primavera 6 database setup i get an error (attached picture).
Am i missing some thing!!! detailed guide is highly appreciated as this is not really my expert field.

Backup LISTENER.ORA file!!!!!!!

In ...\network\admin open listener.ora

see

SID_LIST_LISTENER =
  (SID_LIST =
    (SID_DESC =
      (SID_NAME = PLSExtProc)
      (ORACLE_HOME = D:\Ora10g)
      (PROGRAM = extproc)
    )
    (SID_DESC =
      (SID_NAME = test)
      (ORACLE_HOME = D:\Ora10g)
    )
  )

Add the entry
    (SID_DESC =
      (SID_NAME = test)
      (ORACLE_HOME = D:\Ora10g)
    )
with regard to the particular Oracle Home and SID Name.


In Oracle 11g you have to create from scratch in the listener.ora file the section

SID_LIST_LISTENER =
…..

mentioned above.

Restart the listener:
c:>lsnrctl stop
c:>lsnctl start

I suggest to use SQLServer 2005, which is supported by Primavera 6. You can download SQLServer 2005 Express here:
