problems with DAC server

Good day,

i'm installing OBIA 11g on a windows server 2008 machine , i followed the documents to install Informatica 9.1.0 & DAC 11.1.1.6.4
the installation were perfect ,but my DAC server is not running,i think because i missed with some Environment variables
could any one show me the "good" values of the following environment variables:

-INFA_HOME
-INFA_DOMAINS_FILES
-PATH
-INFA_RESOURCES

i'm not even sure that all of them must be there,

thanks for the help :)

    thanks for your reply
    but it doesn't help much,i can't start the DAC server ,when i choose "DAC server management" , the options of "start,restart,stop server" are inactive ,i can't select them !

    also,i'm not able to connect to informatica service & repository from DAC,as they can't find the DAC server
    and even when i select "connect on local machine" , it gives the following error:

    for Server:
    FATAL ERROR during initialization:
    Error initializing c:\DAC\dac/pmlocale.bin. Make sure the environment variable INFA_HOME is defined and set to where Informatica products are installed.

    then it shows this:
    Failure connecting to "INFORMATICA_REP_SERVER"!

    ANOMALY INFO::: Error while connecting to informatica repository server

    See this from section A.5.1 http://docs.oracle.com/cd/E20490_01/bia.7963/e19038/app_supporting_tasks.htm for defining the env variables

    thanks for the document,i checked my values
    but still nothing changed,i'm getting same errors,i can't "start" the DAC server

    even when i start the server from startserver.bat , it gives a weird error message :
    "windows can't find "-server" make sure you typed the name correctly,and then try again"
