Oracle 9i on Windows 7(64 Bit)

Hi,
To set up DB environment similar to my Office, I installed Oracle 9i on my Windows 7(64 Bit) in my laptop...But in office we have Windows XP..
For DB creation, I gave the SID as "primsri" and I was not prompted for any sys/system password while installation as Administrator. I find only empty folders pfile/udump/bdump etc in C:\oracle\ora92\admin\ora9i\. I see the PRIMSRI folder icon with a lock symbol on it...

I used the Oracle 9i(32 Bit) s/w installation kit having 3 CDs..

I was able to create a new SID ora9i as administrator and tnsping was successfull. When I tried to connect sqlpls "/as sysdba", it was futile..TNS-00516 Permission Denied error was thrown.
when I gave sys@sun9 as sysdba it prompts for password, irrespective whatever password typed right or wrong, the TNS-12500:TNS:Listener failed to start a dedicated server proces..

In listener log i can see the TNS-12500-> TNS-12546->TNS-12560->TNS-00516 Errors.
Also in C:\oracle\ora\92\database the sqlnet log also has the TNS Permission denied error.

Kindly assist ..

Regards
Sri

    V9 Oracle has been obsoleted & unsupported this whole Century & never certified on Windows 7

    why are you willing to upgrade & use new & supported OS but unwilling to do the same with Oracle?

    Pl identify which version of Win 7. The only database versions certified on Win 7 Professional or higher are 10.2.0.5 and 11gR2. You cannot install 9i on Win 7 and expect it to work without issues.

    If you want to emulate what you have in your office, then you will need to install Win XP Pro on your machine (or in a VM on your nachine) - I do not see any other option.

    You can go with

    1. Download OEL 5.x version from e-delivery.
    2. Create VM machine(make googling you can find many good site)
    3. Use your OEL software and create Vm linux machine on your win7 laptop
    4. Install 11g and use it for your purpose
