Did you not build a database when you installed Oracle?  Check your services or in task manager look for oracle.exe using a lot of memory.


If you don't have one running, you should have a database configuration assistant in your program groups.  That will let you build a database.

I should verify: you installed the Oracle server and not the client, correct?

There is a lot to consider in creating a database
But to get you started  on windows

start -> all_programs -> oracle -> configuration and migration tools -> Database Configuration Assistant.

This will guide you through the database creation steps.

Documentation for reading.

PlSQL Developer:
Pl/SQL developer prompts you for your login information on startup.
If you have bypassed this, then you can go to   "Sessions" menu bar and select Logon.

http:#a35365508 is a blind link.  It should not be part of the solution.

http:#a35300676 is a reference to the database configuration assistant which is mentioned in the first post, http:#a35146547

It should be a split between http:#a35146547 and http:#a35300676
