Hi,

I installed Oracle XE on windows 7 Home edition.

When I run the restore option from the menu, I got the following message:


This operation will shut down and restore the database. Are you sure [Y/N]?y
Restore in progress...
System error 5 has occurred.

Access is denied.


I run it as the user that installed Oracle and the user has admin rights.

Anyone has a solution to this?

Microsoft has gone a little overboard in securing things out of the box.

I'm not sure what 'Menu' you are selecting to restore XE but this error appears to be a Windows permission error.

Check out the following to help you 'elevate' your rights when running the program:
