ORA 12560 TSN protocol adapter error

When I install Oracle 8i on a Windows 2003 server I receive an error, "ORA 12560 TSN Protocol adapter error." Why am I getting this error?
Oracle 8i is not supported on the Windows 2003 server. I'd start by using a supported database release. If memory serves, the first Oracle Database release supported for Windows 2003 server is 9.2.0.3 (that's 9.2.0.1 with the 9.2.0.3 patchset applied). Start there and see if that works. Consult the certification matrix if you want to know which database product is supported with a certain OS version.
