Database Instance Installation error- DIM:00011


I got the following error during installation of ECC 5.0 Ides version. It was Oracle Database( on Windows 2003 server(SP 2)

DIM-00011. The service does not exist. Cause: You have tried to edit a service which does not exist, or there is an error trying to access the registry

I couldn't find Oracle services in the Services directory at all. Previously I installed Oracle 10.2( software only) and then applied Patch set using OUI. I was unable to connect to Database using SQL* plus session.

However I was able to install Central Instance. The error occured during Database Instance Installation.

you have not installed Oracle using the SAPSERVER.CMD script, you probably used SETUP.EXE and used default values.

I would re-isntall Oracle, delete Oracle services and re-install using SAPSERVER.CMD
