Thanks for the replies. I use win 7 Professional.
I tried, but get access denied error.
c:\Oracle\oracle_homeOct5\product\11.2.0\dbhome_1\NETWORK\ADMIN>ren listener.ora listener.ora.sav
Access is denied.
I gave all the permissions for that user (just to make sure) to the c:\oracle directory, but still I get the access denied.
