ORA-12546 error installing 32-bit Oracle on 64-bit Windows XP

Can I install 32-bit Oracle 8.1.17 on Windows XP 64-bit? It fails when the Database Configuration Assistant is 90% complete with an "ORA-12546: TNS permission denied" error.

Do you know of anyone who has successfully installed 32-bit Oracle 8.1.17 on Windows XP 64-bit? It fails when the Database Configuration Assistant is 90% complete with an "ORA-12546: TNS permission denied" error.
According to Oracle's Certification Matrix, Oracle8i is not certified or supported to run on Windows XP (x86 or 64-bit). You can run Oracle 9.2 and above on this operating system. I don't know whether this is the root cause of your problem, but I would recommend installing a supported and certified version of Oracle.
