    tnsnames.ora file location in WIndows 7

      I just installed Oracle XE 10g on my PC running windows 7. I was told that the tnsnames.ora file was located in C:\XEClient\Network\Admin, however i see no such folder in my XE CLient folder.

      Any Ideas?

          As long as the oracle install has completed OK and set your environment, a cmd box tnsping should reveal the location the %ORACLE_HOME% is using for client setup

          Hit Start/Run and type in cmd (does that work in Win7? Or is it the the PowerShell icon) to get to a command line prompt:
          $ tnsping anyname
          TNS Ping Utility ...
          Used parameter files:
          That network\admin folder is the location for the tnsnames.ora file for your install-
