I saw this thread:


and checked to see if I could start:


using Firefox 8.0 and found that I was "unable to connect". I followed the advice given to the poster of that thread and found that although my OracleDBConsoleorcl service was set to automatic, it was not started. So, I attempted to start it from the Windows services menu, but received a message that Windows could not start it and it said to see the System Event Log. So, I checked the Windows System Event Log and found:

"The OracleDBConsoleorcl service terminated with service-specific error The system cannot find the file specified."

but it does not tell me the name of the file or directory path. So, where do I go from here? I did not want to hijack the other thread, so I started a new one, especially since the original poster was able to start this service. Please feel free to provide a link to anything that tells me what to check or do. Is there a different way to try to start the service that might provide more information?

I have been using this installation for a long time and seem to remember this working once upon a time, but I could be wrong. I don't usually use Enterprise Manager, so this is not something critical, just a curiosity, and something that I might like to explore. I have provided version and system info below. If I need to provide anything else, please let me know.

I don't know if this is more of a Windows problem or an Enterprise Manager problem. Since I have not received any responses in the Windows sub-forum, I will move it to the Enterprise Manager sub-forum.
