          You don't necessarily need net config assistant or net manager to run as all they do is generate text files (tnsnames.ora and sqlnet.ora) for you.

          If you have a tnsnames.ora file and sqlnet.ora file from a different installation you can probably just copy/paste them into your %Oracle%\network\admin folder and see if that gets you going.

          To remove the Oracle software and restore the machine to a 'clean' state if you want to retry the installation is a bit of a hassle because it involves manually cleaning out the registry, your PATH environment variable, etc. However, if you have access to My Oracle Support, the following note walks you through it:

          Hope it helps,
