I have Oracle 12c running on Windows 7.

When I look at the Oracle's specific services (Control Panel\System and Security\Administrative Tools\Services), I have the following 6 services:

enter image description here

So far, everything is normal. I can even start or stop every service by double clicking on it, and then clicking the Start/Stop button. However, for convenience, I want to create a .bat file with commands to open/close all the services. I run in command prompt commands such as net stop [service], and they all work fine except for OracleRemExecServiceV2.

enter image description here

As you can see, I get System error 5 - access is denied. How can I solve this problem?


i ran cmd as admin. Please see the below screenshot. In the Services window, OracleRemExecServiceV2 remains in the 'Starting' state for a long time, without changing to 'Started'.

One more thing: i double clicked the OracleRemExecServiceV2 and, in the General tab, i noticed that the Path was something like C:... (i cannot remember), while the database is installed on D, and all the other five Oracle services have the Path beginning with D:\app\OracleHomeUser\product\12.1.0\dbhome\BIN. So i changed it accordingly, to point to RemoteExecService.exe in the BIN folder in the D directory. Is it ok what I did? otherwise, what would be the normal value for the path of this service?

TASKKILL /IM RemoteExecService.exe /F

It's placed in C:\Temp\2\\oraremservicev2\RemoteExecService.exe.

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00


  • in my case, RemoteExecService.exe is placed under OracleHomeUser\product\12.1.0\dbhome_1\BIN ; however, the command taskkill worked just fine May 2, 2019 at 7:46

Use a command line started with administrator privileges.
