Hi, guys:

I need help as a newbie to install Windows XE 11g R2 on windows 7 64 bits. I installed it without problem, but I cannot run get started. When I click the get started after start the database, I got a message from browser as : Oops! Google Chrome could not connect to 127.0.0.1:8080. So I check threads on forum, and tried with commands:

The content of listener file (C:\oraclexe\app\oracle\product\11.2.0\server\network\ADMIN) is as follows:

      (PROGRAM = extproc)
    )
  )

  (DESCRIPTION_LIST =
    (DESCRIPTION =

      (ADDRESS = (PROTOCOL = TCP)(HOST = arnold-PC)(PORT = 1521))
    )
  )

DEFAULT_SERVICE_LISTENER = (XE)
The content of TNSNAMES.ora is as follows:
XE =
  (DESCRIPTION =
    (ADDRESS = (PROTOCOL = TCP)(HOST = LSGPCDELL790-2)(PORT = 1521))
    (CONNECT_DATA =

      (SERVICE_NAME = XE)
    )
  )

    (CONNECT_DATA =

      (PRESENTATION = RO)
    )
  )

ORACLR_CONNECTION_DATA = 
  (DESCRIPTION = 
    (ADDRESS_LIST = 
      (ADDRESS = (PROTOCOL = IPC)(KEY = EXTPROC1)) 
    ) 
    (CONNECT_DATA = 
      (SID = CLRExtProc) 
      (PRESENTATION = RO) 
    ) 
  ) 
Is there anything I was missing? I am much obliged to anyone who give me a hint.


Thanks a lot!

    Did you follow every requirement and step of the Installation guide? (well, obviously, except the x86 requirement)

    Was user logged in during install a administrator? Was setup.exe started with 'Run as administrator'?

    Please post output of 'set' command.

    For windows, first step ensure the services got created.

    Start/Run/services.msc and click on the Standard tab (for slightly less clutter).

    There should be 4 or 5 oracle entries, only two matter. The database instance service, ...ServiceXE and the listener ...TNSListener the others are not relevant for an XE install.

    If the user that ran the installer program is not in the local administrators group, as stated in the install requirements documentation, more than likely the services did not get set up and the database won't exist.

    If the services are there, try connecting and check the instance status. In a command box (Start/Run/cmd):

    sqlplus /nolog
    connect system
    Password: <the system password entered in installer dialog ... >
    ... Connected.
    select status from v$instance;
    ... OPEN ...

    If you get that far, might be something not quite right with the networking configuration, several things can prevent the Apex web pages (http://...:8080...) from working.

    As far as your configuration files, the client (tnsnames.ora) has a different value for the host than your listener.ora. So one, or both, of those could be incorrect. Check the command box hostname output, ipconfig /all, a few things might need adjustment.

    The tnsnames.ora only matters for making sqlnet connections via a tnsalias. The tnsalias could be anywhere, including on your local hostname. To use a tnsalias, add it to the a connect after the '@' symbol, i.e. connect system@xe to get a connection to your XE specified in the tnsnames.ora file.

    If you want to change the listener configuration, the first thing to do is stop the listener, then make adjustments in the listener.ora, start the listener, and sqlplus ... connect system .... alter system register; to get the instance registered with the listener.
