It appears you are trying to get a normal connection as SYS user.  You cannot do that.  You would have to change the "connect as" from "normal" to "sysdba".  Ideally, you should be connecting as a user other than SYS or SYSTEM.

Seems as though you were posting at the same time I was.

If it is working fine as an administrator user, then I would suspect a permission issue.  The only clue I have is that since the error window is blank, my guess is a permission issue on the Oracle Home directories.  It cannot get to the message file to print the message.

Later I changed the User Account Control settings (Win 7 Control Panel > User Accounts > Change User Account Control settings). I set it to "Never notify" and restarted my PC. Thereafter, I ran PL/SQL Developer as normal user and did not face the issue.

On the pl/sql developer help site, it looks like the blank messages
are indeed  a windows security issue.

This thread is for version 7 but a slightly higher subversion; likely the same problem though.
