Oracle XE 11g Installation - "Oracle XE service instance failed"

If you get the error "Oracle XE service instance failed" while installing the oracle xe..

check the OracleXEService in services (Start->Run (type services.msc) enter)

Remove the OracleServiceXE by using below sc command

sc delete OracleServiceXE

now try the Oracle XE 11 g installation. :-)

  12. Very good, it worked. Friends run this command as Administrator, for example when you type in command, then right click on command and run as administrator, and then run as an administrator and follow the steps mentioned above.
