    'apex is undefined' error

    jima
      I just installed 4.0 on a new, working, installation of 10G XE (on Windows XP) and am following the installation guide to create a workspace and create new users. When I try to log into Oracle Application Express Administration Services (IE8.0) as the ADMIN user I get a page error and these error details:

      User Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 8.0; Windows NT 5.1; Trident/4.0; .NET CLR 1.1.4322; .NET CLR 2.0.50727; .NET CLR 3.0.4506.2152; .NET CLR 3.5.30729)

      Message: 'apex' is undefined

      (10 more repetitions of the line 49 error removed for sanity sake)

      APEX 4.0 is valid to install on XE, right? Windows XP.

      This is the second install to fail and I have downloaded both Apex and XE several times. Two years ago I installed Apex 1.xx and 2.xx without any problems, so was expecting great things!

      Any ideas as to where I have gone wrong?

      Thanks for looking.

          Solution: missed a step in the installation:
          Log back into SQL*Plus (as above) and load images:

          SQL> @apxldimg.sql APEX_HOME
          [Note: APEX_HOME is the directory you specified when unzipping the file. For example, with Windows 'C:\'.]
