Hello folks, I am a student and trying to learn to use the oracle database. I have a windows vista laptop (sadly) and i installed database 11g from oracle by downloading from their website. It installed properly and there were no issues. Now when i am trying to connect, i get an error message and the process nmefwmi.exe crashes. It seems strange because i am able to work with the database still. I did some research online and seems some people faced it on another forum but there didn't seem to be any solution for it. some say go and search on metalink but as i am a student i don't have metalink access. should i really uninstall and install 10g because that seems to be the popular choice?
