Using Oracle 10 XE on a 64-bit Windows installation with j5 I get the following error even though Oracle is running and the configuration appears to be correct: "ORA-06413: Connection not open".

What is happening?

It seems that you will get a "ORA-06413: Connection not open" error if the client application (i.e. j5) is in a directory with a parenthesis in its name (i.e. C:\Program Files (x86)). Their network protocol gets flummoxed by the parenthesis in the client executable's path! (see http://blogs.msdn.com/b/debarchan/archive/2009/02/04/good-old-connectivity-issue.aspx)

A temporary solution it seems, is to move the sjsoft-j5 directory out of C:\Program Files (x86) ...

Apparently it might be fixed in Oracle 11g (which is still in beta at the time of writing this answer).
