Oracle 10 spfile

    I edited the spdile (ora file) and in some way it got corupt. I need to create a new file but don't know how. This is what I read:


    if you are on unix,

    $ cd $ORACLE_HOME/dbs
    $ strings spfilename  temp_pfile.ora

    edit the temp_pfile.ora, clean it up if there is anything "wrong" with it.


    SQL> startup pfile=temp_pfile.ora
    SQL> create spfile from pfile;
    SQL> shutdown
    SQL> startup

    On windows -- just try editing the spfile, create a pfile from it.  save it, and do the same.

    Does anyone understand the Windows way?
