    Go go registry and first check for Actual Oracle RDBMS home NLS_LANG parameter entry under HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE/software/oracle/Homex where homex is your rdbms home.

    Do the same and check for D2K Home.

    These two should match, If not change D2K NLS_LANG parameter. Be careful while playing with registry. If you are not sure. Make a copy of registr by exporting it to local drive and then modify.

    For US, we use AMERICAN_AMERICA.WE8ISO8859P1
    This is what on my desktop. I don't know what you guys use in Singapore. Whatever thats on your machine.

    Make sure your listener is up and running.
    you can verify if its running by executing the command
    "tnsping D2KINST" where d2kinst is the
    name of your instance, as defined in your listener file
    and if it is unsuccessful you have a problem with your listener.

    I don't know the name of the executable on NT but
    locate the lsnrctl and execute it to start your listener(s).

    Just a thought!
