    Unanswered: sql*plus not starting on 8i install

    Hi there,

    I have just installed 8i enterprise on winXP pro. I have installed it many times before for personal joy. The installation completed without any glitches, the thing is that SQL*Plus won't start up from the start menu or from oracle/bin/sqlplus.exe. The strange thing is that i can use sql*plus through the command prompt. Although I can use it, I wouldn't mind using SQL*Plus environment - and i don't really feel like reinstalling.

    I have SP1a installed - although i don't see why that would hurt.

    Any advice?

    What about if you try to kill the process (if is there a process - sqlplusw.exe) trough the Task Manager? Seems too obvious, but I had the same problem some time ago. It was creating ghost processes, as soon I killed all of them, it was fixed.
