    I installed Oracle 7.3.4.0 on Windows NT 4.0
    I am unable to Start OracleService and OracleStart services. Getting following error...

    Could not start the OracleSrviceORAM service on \\OMS1.
    Error 0126 : The specified module could not be found.

    What may be the problem ?? Appreciate all the help.

    check trace and log files (under %oraclehome%\rdbms73(?)\trace and log I believe).
    Try to start database with svrmgr(73 may be svrmgr30 or 23, check in bin\) and see logs/trace for errors.

    To start DB with svrmgrl:

    set ORACLE_SID=<your sid>
    svrmgr30
    connect internal/oracle(or other password, default is oracle)
    startup

    Other 'low level' commands in execution order:

    startup nomount
    alter database mount
    alter database open

    and see what is going on. May be have to reinstall oracle binaries, configure registry, fix OS or hardware...

    Make sure you're path has your ORACLE_HOME/bin directory included in it. If not, try a reboot.

    Possibly delete and recreate service as suggested.

    (LND - You need the ORACLESrvcSID Service running in order to connect to the instance - without this it will fail as soon as svrmgrl starts).

    Yes, Oracle Services must be running (oradim has to be used), as well as account for those services must have all necessary rights - usually has.

    What else makes sense to setup/check are:

    oracle_sid in NT registry
    NLS_LANG to american_america.... both in registry and in create database.
    path to oracle_home\bin is good thing, but not very critical(?)
    oracle.key in bin: THAT ONE IS CRITICAL, if exists in 7.3. Check and set its contents to correct oracle home.
