Oracle Error starting listener: "Failed to start service, error 0"

Today I faced Below error when I was trying to start listener in my Windows machine :-

C:\Users\NewAdmin>lsnrctl start

Starting tnslsnr: please wait...

Failed to start service, error 0.

I checked the log in G:\app\NewAdmin\cfgtoollogs\netca also I got below message :-

By checking the above its seems port was free but still it's not able to read the listener related files.

LSNRCTL status was giving me below message :-

C:\Users\NewAdmin>lsnrctl status

   64-bit Windows Error: 2: No such file or directory

It seems LSNRCTL command was not able to read the listener related files from already set environment variables(ORACLE_HOME and PATH).

I checked the environment variables , In User level settings ORACLE_HOME and PATH variables was properly defined but in System level Settings ORACLE_HOME was set to another location. I changed it as its in USER level setting and then tried to start the listener and it started successfully. PFB output :-
