Oracle 8.1.7. client and 2000 Pro SP3

Has anyone experienced any problems using/installing 8.1.7 client on a workstation running 2000 pro with service pack 3 installed? It seems that everytime I try to install on a workstation with SP3 the installation refuses to start. Any ideas?

This is a known problem with Pentium 4 processors. Here's one workaround that should solve your problem.
1. Create a temporary directory on the client.
2. Copy the entire contents of the Oracle CD to the temporary directory created in step 1.
3. Search the directory structure created in Step 1 for the existence of the filename symcjit.dll.
4. Rename each copy of the symcjit.dll to symcjit.old.
5. Run the setup.exe from the \install\win32 directory and install Oracle 8.1.x and related products.

  • Oracle 10g EE Windows Client on different machine than Pracle 10g EE server

    I downloaded the Oracle 10g EE Windows Client and installed it on a WinXP (SP3) machine that had no Oracle components installed. The idea was to use it to connect to an Oracle 10g EE database running on another machine on the network.
    After installing the software, what I find in the start menu is:
    Oracle Client 10g Express Edition
    - Go To Online Forum
    - Read Documentation
    - Register For Online Forum
    - Run SQL Command Line
    When I "Read Documentation" and go to the "Getting Started" link it talks about other menu options which I can't find ("Go To Database Home Page").
    Clearly something isn't working here, but what?

    This option is available on server. Not on client.
    Use following link instead:

  • BootCamp or Parallels running Win XP & Win 2000 Pro on MacPro Xeon Chips?

    I know that BootCamp (BC) only allows XP on the Mac. I currently run the MacMini (for testing) and the MacBook with Parallels using WIN XP and 2000 Pro. However, does anyone know if Parallels Desktop (PD) will run WIN 2000 on a MacPro since it now ships with the Intel Xeon chips as opposed to the Intel Core Duo chips recently shipped in the iMac, MacMini, and notebooks?

    You'll probably want to address that question to Parallels. I can't see anything on their site that mentions the new Mac Pro, so you'll want to confirm with them that the current version of Parallels Desktop is compatible with the Mac Pro and if there are any limitations re. the OS versions Desktop can run.

  • Connection Errors between Oracle 8 Client and Oracle 8.1.6 EE

    Our current application has been developed using PowerBuilder 6.5 and Oracle 8.1.5. Since PB 6.5 does not have a "native driver" for 8.1.5, we have used their driver for Oracle 8.0.5 for Net8 connectivity to the server. Everything works fine.
    Recently, I downloaded the current version of Oracle 8.1.6 EE from Technet to try out the compatibilty of our software with the next version of 8I, it failed. The error seems to be somewhere between the 8.0.5 Oracle Client Software and the downloaded Oracle 8.1.6 EE Server software. Some how we have lost the ability to declare cursors. I tried declaring a cursor in a procedure through SQL*Plus and it failed their as well. I have even tried the Oracle 8.0.6 Client, with same results.
    Has anyone seen this? If so, what should I do?

    Two-task common errors are generally RDBMS related issues, but could be caused by a problem with SQL*Net, or an application (i.e. Pro*C).
    ======== Possible reasons for the ORA-03106 errors include:
    1. Incompatibilities between the client application and the RDBMS server.
    For example, version incompatibilities, or a client trying to use a feature not supported by the database kernel.
    2. When using database links or gateways.
    3. Network or SQL*Net problems.
    4. Corruptions.
    5. PL/SQL - language related.
    check the NLS_LANG variable on the client and server.

  • Problem with oracle 8i installation on windows 2000 pro

    Hi all
    i'm installing oracle 8i enterprize edition on windows 2000 professional.
    At the end of the installation,in the configuration tools step when it says that
    the following tools will be automatically started for you etc...
    the oracle database configuration assistant keep failing and i get the following message in the text file dbSilentCreate
    < 8I\starterdb is an invalid command line argument. >
    what should i do? anyone familiar with this problem ?

    This should be a workaround for your problem. Let me know if it works or not.
    1. Create a temporary directory on your server.
    2. Copy the contents of the Oracle RDBMS Server CD to the temporary directory created in step 1.
    3. Search the directory structure created in step 1 for the existence of the filename symcjit.dll.
    4. Rename each copy of the symcjit.dll to symcjit.old.
    5. Run the setup.exe from the \install\win32 directory and install Oracle 8.1.x.

  • How do I get firefox to display images clearly? I've got Windows 2000 Pro and Firefox 3.6.6. Internet Explorer shows images clearly, so I'm sure I have the correct graphics driver. Do I need a plugin or add-on of some sort? When I go to "updates", it

    When I use Firefox the images and logos don't show up clearly/correctly. I'm using Windows 2000 Pro. and just installed Firefox 3.6.6. I'm sure I have the right graphics driver as I'm able to see the images and logos clearly in Internet Explorer. I only have the "default plugin" installed. I'm thinking that I'm missing a plugin or add-on of some sort, but I'm not sure which one(s). When I go to "updates" it says there were no updates available. When I go to "Add-ons" it gives a list of Add-ons but I'm not sure which would help my issue. Any help would be appreciated.:)

  • Oledb and path length - Oracle client and networking components ...

    I've been suddenly getting the
    "Oracle client and networking components were not found. These components are supplied by Oracle Corporation and are part of the Oracle Version 7.3.3 or later client software installation."
    error when trying to connect to an oracle 9.2 database using the msdaora oledb provider.
    "..ora92/bin" is in my PATH environoment variable and the hints about setting read and execute permissions on the ..ora92/bin direction didn't work for me. However, what did do the trick, was reducing the length the PATH environement variable to under 182 characters.
    Anybody else seen this that can explain what's gonig on here?

    Hello Kamal,
    Thanks for your reply
    My system looks like this:
    OS: MS Windows XP Professional Service Pack 2
    msdaora version: 2.81.1117.0
    This problem has only recently surfaced, but has now appeared on at least two other systems as well as my own. Any system changes must have happened on all three systems. I have "automatic updates" setup on my computer and they maybe setup on the other computers - could the be responsible for breaking oledb?
    Other things I have tried:
    The Oracle Oledb provider is also not working. It gives me the error:
    "OraOLEDBpus.dll: the specified module could not be found"
    When I reduce the size of the PATH variable it works too.
    I am always able to run executables from the ../ora92/bin directory. So the path is only being wrongly interpreted by the Oledb providers.

  • Oracle Instant Client and OUT Parameter of custom type in Stored Procedures

    Hi @ all!
    I try to set up a simple client application, that calls a stored procedure via Instant Client from C#.
    The stored procedure and assiciated types looks like this:
          Id      INTEGER,
          value     FLOAT
                                        RESULTSET OUT MYVALUELIST)
    ...I created an Oracle Command executing this SP and added OracleParameters for ID and (where I got stuck) the RESULTSET.
    Is it possible to pass a parameter with a custom type from C# in some way?
    I already tried it as a function with SELECT * FROM TABLE(ReadValues(1));
    With my parameter RESULTSET as the RETURN type. But since I use DML within the procedure, this does not work inside of a query...
    Any suggestions?
    Thanks in advance!

    Hi Greg!
    Sorry, I misunderstood the forum topic then. =(
    Anyway, in the example you provided in the link, this is nearly exactly my situation. But there the Oracle.DataAccess.Client is used, where the OracleDBType can be called to initialize an object of type person. I use the instant client libraries called by using System.Data.OracleClient. There is only the OracleType enum, that does not contain an object or something similar.
    So I do it right now after trying a bit with a ref cursor parameter and an OracleDataAdapter - the ref cursor is passed back from Oracle as a DataReader, so die DataAdapter is able to use it for a .Fill():
    OracleCommand cmd = new OracleCommand();
    cmd.Parameters.Add("RESULTSET", OracleType.Cursor).Direction = ParameterDirection.Output;
    OracleDataAdapter odr = new OracleDataAdapter(cmd);
    DataTable result = new DataTable();
    odr.Fill(result);Within my stored procedure I just added the following OUT parameter:
                                        RESULTSET OUT sys_refcursor)
    currentlist MYVALUELIST;
    ... [Adding elements to that list] ...
    OPEN resultset for select * from TABLE(currentlist);It works now, but I don't like that solution that much since I'm always afraid that there are lots of opened cursors idyling around. Do I have to close this one explicitly after filling my table by the DataAdapter?

  • Error to connect oracle 10g client and designer BO 4.0

    I try to connect oracle 10g client and designer BO 4.0.
    I created an ODBC connection to function in the administration tools of data sources but I can not connect once in designer.
    I tried using the driver directly oracle designer 10 but I have the same error that is this:
    DBD: ORA-12154: TNS: connection identifier specified could not be resolved
    someone there had the same concerns?

    so it looks like that your TNSNAMES.ORA file isn`t properly configured. Thats why you can connect with the IDT to your Oracle Database.
    Your DBA`s should sent you the correct TNSNAMES.ORA file or the entry for your DB prior. After the tnsping works, you will be able to use the IDT properly.

  • Trying to understand text encodings between windows clients and oracle DB

    I am focusing on a "maybe bad configured" oracle windows xp client connecting into a well configured oracle db server (10g for example). Instead of just keep the correct client settings to make it work I would prefer to understand what is really doing the oracle client with all the posible bad configurations regarding encodings.
    When the client executes something like "SELECT 'Col1', N'Col2' from dual" before sending the sql sentence into the server the sentence itself should be encoded.
    But the way the sentence is encoded or the fact that some magic encoding transform occurs depends on the technology used (Java Thin, OCI, Oledb, etc..) and sometimes it depends on the windows setting "Languages for Non-unicode programs" and sometimes it depends on the client NLS_LANG setting on the registry. Or maybe thigs are simpler and I simply got confused... Here we could add that maybe some third party tool could do some other "helpfull" hidden magic encoding transformation to make it work and things become interesting
    A second time when all this encoding stuff should be considered is when the results of the sentences are retrieved on the client.
    At this point the client receives an byte stream from the server (that could be a VARCHAR column or a NVARCHAR column). Again depending on the technology used the client could be specting a utext, text (OCI) or a CHAR, NCHAR (in JAVA) or a SQL_C_WCHAR, SQL_C_CHAR (in OleDb), etc...
    Well, I'm not sure at all about the first point. Is all the sentence encoded in the same way before sending it to the server (ie is sended as plain text) or before the client parses the sentence and it understand that is sending a SELECT statement that returns two cols (one varchar and the other nvarchar)? For example the N, the ' and the Col2 are sent using the same encoding?

    Section: Generating ECID by Native/WS/Jolt clients and Domain Gateway
    We are using Jolt Clients, via JSL for executing Tuxedo Services. The problem, we always face while debugging is cross relation. It would be extremely useful for us if we could get the ECID printed in webserver and tuxedo server process. Can we get ECID using any programming API in jolt client and in Tuxedo server process ? It would help us to correlate web, Tux and server logs

  • Oracle 9i Client and System.Data.OracleClient Problems

    I have an application server that has an ASP.NET webpage that queries an Oracle database on another machine through ODP.NET.
    The app server's machine's OS is Microsoft Windows XP SP2 with IIS and .NET 2.0 Framework installed and configured correctly.
    The following Oracle software is installed (from OUI inventory listing)
    Oracle Services For Microsoft Transaction Server
    Oracle ODBC Driver
    Oracle Provider for OLE DB
    Oracle Objects for OLE
    Oracle Data Provider for .NET
    Oracle 9i Client
    Sun JDK
    When the ASP.NET page attempts to connect to the Oracle instance on the remote machine via the Data provider I get the following message...
    System.Data.OracleClient requires Oracle client software version 8.1.7 or greater.
    Description: An unhandled exception occurred during the execution of the current web request. Please review the stack trace for more information about the error and where it originated in the code.
    Exception Details: System.Exception: System.Data.OracleClient requires Oracle client software version 8.1.7 or greater.
    Source Error:
    An unhandled exception was generated during the execution of the current web request. Information regarding the origin and location of the exception can be identified using the exception stack trace below.
    I know the connectivity between the client on the app server (SQL*Plus: Release
    and the remote database (Oracle Database 10g Enterprise Edition Release
    is working since sqlplus sessions connect and the NET Manager tests through Local Service Naming succceed.
    I've tried the "ORACLE_HOME permission changes" solution for Autenticated users as articulated here ....!BD40DBF53845E64F!122.entry
    but the error persists.
    In the list of oracle installed products above, I installed the first 5 (ODP.NET) before the last 2 (Oracle 9i client). Would this matter ? At first I thought perhaps the ODP.NET component didn't "know" about the client since it was installed before there was one on that app server.
    Feeback much appreciated.

    Well I figured it out. I guess...
    1) Uninstalled all Oracle Software Products
    2) Rebooted the machine.
    3) Manually removed C:\oracle\ora92\.
    4) Installed and configured the following
    * Oracle 9i Client
    5) Installed and configured the following
    * Oracle Services for Microsoft Transaction Server
    * Oracle ODBC Driver
    * Oracle Provider for OLE DB
    * Oracle Objects for OLE
    * Oracle Data Provider for .NET
    6) Gave the following accounts Full Control over the ORACLE_HOME directory
    * ASP.NET Machine Account
    * Internet Guest Account
    * Launch IIAS Process Account
    6) iisreset
    The order in which Oracle components are installed does matter.

  • What is an Oracle Client and why is it needed

    I have an application that is using an Oracle database as data source. Application and database is located on two different servers. Now I will move application to a new server and to do this I need to install an Oracle client and install this on the new application server. From my understanding this Oracle client is needed to make it possible for the application server to communicate with the database server. I wonder if someone can tell me more about this Oracle client, functionality, role and why it is needed?
    I have been recommended to install the Oracle client 10g version. Where can I download this together with instructions of installation process?
    FYI - database used is Oracle 10g EE.

    Third-party products (and Oracle's own too) need certain Oracle DLLs in order to connect to the database. This set of files is called the Oracle client. You may also want to learn about tnsnames.ora because you need to edit it in order to use Oracle client to Oracle database.
