    Unanswered: 9i on XP error :ORA-12571 TNS:packet writer failure

    This mess began with me attempting to install Oracle 8i on a Window XP Pro machine. That install failed, and then I read the instructions. Not supported. I dont wish to use 8i on XP , so dont need links to that article

    I uninstalled and all services appeared to be properly removed. I could
    restart the machine and all looked good.

    I then installed Oracle9i Release 2 (9.2.0.1), Personal Edition onto the
    machine. During the install, at the point where it is creating a database, my
    install failed with a "ORA-12571 TNSacket writer failure" message. No
    database was installed, but the listener services all seem to be up and
    running. I tried using the utilities to create a db, but no success. I can
    use the utilities to view other Oracle instances running on the network.

    I have looked te forums and although I have seen simular post no one seems to be able to answer this one...

    thanks for responding.

    from oracle otn

    TNS-12571 TNSacket writer failure

    Cause: An error occurred during a data send. This message is not normally visible to the user.

    In addition, this message could occur when any of the following SQL*Plus commands have been issued:

    SHUTDOWN ABORT
    SHUTDOWN IMMEDIATE
    SHUTDOWN TRANSACTIONAL
    Action: For further details, turn on tracing and re-execute the operation. If the error persists, contact Oracle Support Services.

    Agree,

    legendary response. Nothing at all on Oracle's site as far as I can see.

    THANKYOU
