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. :-)
