    Red face Unanswered: Oracle 8i Connection Problems

    I recently installed VS dot net on Windows XP professional edition. Then I installed Oracle 8i.

    After installation I was not able start Oracle 8i's service coz, it gave me the error "Error No. 1053 : The service did not respond to the start or control request...".

    I loaded the db manually using the svrmgrl utility. Now comes the problem. When i try to connect to the db using Microsoft OLE DB Provider for Oracle, It gives me the error, " Test connection failed because of the error in initializing the provider ". I am really stuck in this.
    Kindly help :-)

    Good - normally these type of problems are associated with a problem with the mdac installation.
