check your windows services for a service called "OracleServiceXE" and "OracleXETNSListener", they should be on Automatic so they start up on system boot.
Checked. They are both Automatic.
But it is strange. Restarted. All was fine. Shutdown. Had the same problem.
Then came the "duh" moment. I waited a few seconds. Tried again. All was fine.
I think I was just trying to click on the shortcut before the services had time to start up.
Webservices can give some vague result during startup, and it takes some time for all to be started so you might have to wait a little :)
