Unanswered: secret of getting oracle/win-ME to run ???
What is the secret of getting oracle 9i to
work with windows-ME? Although oracle
is not 'certified' for win-ME, I understand
that it can be made to work, but never
have gotten enough detailed information
to actually see it through. I know that
the oracle installation wizard is not
set up to handle the peculiarities of
win-ME, so that tweaks of the registry
and other windows files will need to
be done by hand, but what specifically
are the required tweaks?
I have fiddled with tnsnames.ora and
listener.ora files according to some
helpful hints, but my symptoms remain
the same. Whenever I attempt login
(using the predefined user/password
combinations system/manager or
I get 'ORA-12560 TNS protocol adapter
error'. If I also include host string using
my service name 'orcl', I get
'ORA-12541 TNS no listener' error
instead. When I attempt to run
'tnsping orcl' from command line, I get 'TNS-12541 TNS:No Listener' error.
When I attempt to start from command
line 'sqlplus system/manager@orcl' I
get TNS-12541 TNS: No Listener' error.
As far as I can tell, there is nothing
wrong with my tnsnames.ora and
listener.ora. There must be something
else missing or which needs tweaked,
such as ODBC configuration, registry,
or sqlnet.ora file.
