Dear Gurus,
I installed oracle 9i enterprise on windows xp.I created the pfile from spfile.
Then I shutdown the database.I want to start with pfile.I did it as follows.
SQL> startup pfile='C:\oracle\admin\shihab\pfile\init.ora'
LRM-00109: could not open parameter file 'C:\oracle\admin\shihab\pfile\init.ora'
ORA-01078: failure in processing system parameters

Can you advice me,

Thanks in advance
