Can not find Database Configuration Assistant

It's my understanding that once I have download and installed XE one of the first task I need to do is to create a database. It appears that Database Configuration Assistant is the tool to use for this. Unfortunatly, I do not see how to get to it. On my start menu I see references to batch files to backup database and restore database but nothing to create a database or get to Database Configuration Assistant.

I received an error on the install which may be part of the problem.
"The installer is unable to instantiate the file C:\Users.....\AppData\Temp\{540....}/KEY_XR.reg. This file does not appear to exist."

I'm running Window 7 Home Premium, 64 bit operating system.

Any idea what I am doing wrong?

    Home versions of Windows are not supported for Oracle installs -

    So things may or may not work as advertised.

    In general, when you install XE successfully on a supported OS, a database is automatically created for you - you do not need to use DBCA. In fact, the XE install does not include the DBCA executable
