    hi,

    i downloaded the v11g xe for testing purposes, however it will not log in to the new database upon loading the "start database", it brings up the small black screen and simply says C:\Windows\system32>

    i am running windows 10 and downloaded the x64 version,

    so please tell me how to launch the database past the initial command screen.

    thanks

    You do realize that Version 11 is 3major releases behind? Does your computer meet the minimum requirements for the installation? You should be checking the installation guide and pre-installation checklist to make sure you're not trying to 'put an elephant into a dog house.' That you only see a command prompt clearly shows something is wrong with the installation.

    Check the documents listed then, if your computer DOES meet the minimum requirements come back with a bit more detail.

    i am runnng win10, with laptop that supports all the min requirements i reckon, 300+ gb hd free, 4gb ram and intel n3540 duo cpu's, compaq 15 notebook. this is an older laptop i am aware but is just for testing and training, but the pl/sql version is the version requested from the course i am doing.

    under programs when i select the start database, it only brings up the command prompt, i was then thinking that the GUI is launched from the sqlplus cmd...so i am currently stuck.

    thanks

    GUIs are never launched from the sqlplus.exe command. You need to check the shortcut created to see what it's actually running.

    You give very little useful information about this issue, and it would appear that the installation didn't complete successfully. You have checked the installation logs?

    No, and it's not designed to.

    Why did you choose version 11 XE when any database release is available , for single-user use without cost, from www.oracle.com? You should download a full copy of the database to use.

    Then you contact 'the guy in the course' to see what may be wrong. You have no information on HOW you installed this version, no installation logs, no error text, nothing that could assist someone here in helping you.

    You need to post the pre-installation requirements and information PROVING your computer meets or exceeds them.
