I had installed Oracle 9i in Windows XP Professional Edition. Whenever I start SQL plus(GUI) it says, ORA-1034 error, "Oracle is not available, Shared memory realm does not exist" In the services I saw that an associate database service is running. Thank you.

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

This error message generally means that your database instance is not running.
Check at your services (control_panel->administrative_tools->services) if a service called OracleService<YourDatabaseName> is running, and start it if it is not running. You also might want to set its startUpType to “Automatic”.

Regards,

    How are you logging in? Are all the Oracle services running? If you are using a database name, what is the name and how does it compare to the service name that is running?
