I have installed oracle 11gr1(64 bit) in window 7 home basic (64 bit).
Database installed sucessfully completed and then when i tried to connect through SQL*PLUS i got erro like
ORA-12154: TNS:could not resolve the connect identifier specified.
Then i checked whether oracle service is started or not. when service is showing status_type is automatic and not started.
After installation i have restarted my laptop. i tried to start oracle srvice its throughing error is
Window could not start the oracleserviceorcl service in local system.
Error 1067: The process terminated unexpectedly.
Can you please help me how to start service with out any error.
11gR1 is not certified on any Windows 7 version.
Also, Home/Basic versions of Windows are not certified for any Oracle software installs.
One option you have is to install VM software on your Win 7 machine, create a Linux VM, install Linux in the VM, then install 11gR2 in the Linux VM, Pl see my blog (linked in my profile) for detailed steps on how to do so.
