I installed Oracle patch on my Win2k box thats running 8.1.6 r2. Soon after applying the patch I recieved the following error message when attempting to startup the oracle database service.

"The procedure entry point nscxdssave could not be loaded in dynamic link library oran8.dll"

I checked metalink's website but came up empty.

before I applied the patch I was running the base install from the CD

any info on this would be helpful.
