I am running Win XP pro and have IIS 5.1 installed. After installing Oracle 8.1.7 standard edition (I selected the typical installation), my localhost web server seems to have been "replaced" with "Oracle HTTP Server", which is "stopped". When I try to start it, I get the message "Unexpected error 0x8ffe2740 occurred". Any references to the localhost server don't work anymore.
Can anyone give me any pointers on what I should do?
It turned out to be a ZoneAlarm thing, with a conflict on port 80. I don't think this is related to the Oracle installation, but I'm still not totally sure, as I have uninstalled Oracle and have not re-installed it yet. However, the uninstall of Oracle, and a re-install of IIS did not solve it until I disabled ZoneAlarm (software firewall).
