I installed Oracle 11g 188.8.131.52.0 on Windows 7 Enterprise - 64 bit after the installation when I try to create the database I am facing the mentioned problem.
I removed the software installed it again still the same
I created the Oracle service using oradim after / before setting oracle_home and oracle_sid; still the same (service is created with manual startup type but when I try to start it I face the same problem) / oradim utility also gives the same error
I tried to create the database using DBCA on first try it doesn't create the service, on the second try it creates but it doesn't start it - I removed and created the service again with oradim but facing the same problem
I tried to start the service using Windows Services utility but facing the same problem
Configured listener and services manually and using Network Manager but still facing the same problem,
I feel only thing left is to do it on a separate machine but that might not be possible for me
