The value specified in the "REPORTS_TMP" environment variable was invalid because there was no directory named "C:\DOCUME~1\dev\LOCALS~1\Temp\1".

To implement the solution, please execute the following steps :
  1. Go to Windows Registry.
  2. Navigate to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE -> SOFTWARE -> Oracle.
  3. Select the HOME under Oracle where the Oracle 10g Application Server is installed.
  4. Change the value of the "REPORTS_TMP" environment variable from "C:\DOCUME~1\dev\LOCALS~1\Temp\1" to an existing directory. For example  "c:\tmp".
  5. Now start the Reports Server and it will start properly.
