I have Oracle database 11GR2 on Windows 7.

When I want to start enterprise manager the error below is shown:

Microsoft Windows [Version 6.1.7601] Copyright (c) 2009 Microsoft Corporation. All rights reserved.

a) you need a command prompt with elevated privileges (run as administrator) to do this

b) alternatively, you can start the service from Windows GUI (services.msc)


AS mention your error shows like "System error 5 has occurred". It's administrator privilege Error.

if you are using Oracle 11g R2 in windows 7, simply right click on CMD and run it as administrator.
