    hello, i am trying to install oracle database 11g on windows server 2008 and i got this error on the last step of the installation.

    Enterprise manager configuration failed due to the following error: Error starting Database control. Refer to the log file at ...

    I looked into the log file and it has the following information:

    Oracle database 11g is not supported on Windows server 2008. Check the compatibility from where you downloaded 11g. Upto 10g is supported on windows server 2008. That said i don't think your error is because of your OS.
    did u check this file? what does it contain? let us know
