  • How to remove Oracle 11g client from Windows 7 64-bit workstation.

    When the Oracle 11g client was installed on a Windows 7 64-bit workstation, it was mistakenly installed as "Administrator".
    We do not wish to do this; instead we want to install this client as a user with Administrator privileges.
    When I try to install the client, I get a message sending me to this directory:
    I do not know why this message is produced; the directory it refers to DOES NOT EXIST.
    My suspicion is that there extraneous entries in the registry which have not been removed; the obvious ones such as HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\ORACLE have been deleted.
    What I believe I need is a COMPLETE list of entries placed in the registry upon installation of the Oracle client.
    The obvious problem is that the Uninstall feature of Oracle client does NOT FULLY remove all of the above entries.
    As a side note, the Oracle client software installation needs to be revamped to detect situations such as this and provide a course of corrective actions.

    I've not done it yet with 11g, but prior editions, there are 3 things that have to be done to eradicate an oracle client installation from Windows, after running uninstaller
    1) delete the registry key HKLM\software\oracle
    2) delete the ORACLE_HOME directory from the file system
    3) delete c:\Program Files\oracle

  • Oracle 11g client for Windows 8 - 64bit exists impromptu without error msg

    HI all.
    I just got a new laptop and its running Windows 8 Pro 64 bit os. I downloaded Oracle Client 11g 64bit from the oracle website. After clicking the setup.exe installer a msg box pops up saying '[INS -13003] Environment does not meet the requirement' with no further information. Yet i go ahead and continue becos i was told it was a general error and should be ignored.
    After that, the GUI comes up. I select Administrator (or any) installation type, the language, specify my installation location but on performing prerequisite check, it exists without error. Any help?

    The 12c client install is documented at Contents
    - it is a pretty straightforward process once you have downloaded the software. Did you try to install the full client or the Instant Client ? install may or may not complete correctly - if it does, there is no guarantee that it will function as expected

  • Oracle 11g Client for Windows Server 2008 Relase2 Operating Stystem

    I am having a server with Operating System as Windows Server 2008 R2 version 64 - bit.
    I am using SSRS 2008 which is 64 bit, for retreiving the data from Oracle (which is 11g - 32 bit), I am unable to create data source for Oracle.
    I had installed ODAC Components of Oracle on the server, but still I am getting the following error:
    "The 'OraOLEDB.Oracle.1' provider is not registered on the local machine."
    Does any one know how to install Oracle Client 11g on Windows Server 2008 R2 Operating system?

    It is wonderful that you are polite and encouraging to new people.
    While you are responding, could you explicitly direct people to use the correct forum. This has at least 2 benefits:
    1) Ensures that the person gets the widest possible amount of assistance;
    2) Ensures that the rest of us do not need to waste time on improperly placed questions.
    I suggest 'explicitly' since some people do not get the hint, and keep returning to the original thread.
    This thread belongs in 'Database - General' or 'Database - Install'.

    I was able to resolve it...Apparently I was logged on as administrator when I invoked deinstall which caused it to hang when it came to the part where it was getting ready to deinstall the .NET components...I logged off and loged in as myself and invoked the deinstall and it completed successfully...

  • Unable to install Oracle 11g R2 on Windows 8

    Hi All,
    I know this is a familiar post with quite a few users facing problems while trying to install Oracle 11g R2 on Windows 8 platform. Subsequently, there have been resolutions provided -  Hyperion Error of the Day: Oracle Database 11g Installer Disappears After Prerequisite Checks.
    I am facing a similar problem - the installation window disappears after I select the "Select Class Option" as desktop. I tried following the steps which have been advised, but to no success. I would like to make a point here - The Operating System that I use is - Windows 8 Single Language, which is different from Windows 8 Enterprise Edition. Plus, the java I use is:
    java version "1.7.0_45"
    Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.7.0_45-b18)
    Java HotSpot(TM) Client VM (build 24.45-b08, mixed mode, sharing)
    Kindly Help.
    With regards

    The solution provided in this link worked.  Hyperion Error of the Day: Oracle Database 11g Installer Disappears After Prerequisite Checks
    Even though I installed java in c:\java, I got the same error, but calling setup.exe from command prompt and setting the jreLoc path has worked.
    Eg: on command prompt, I gave below command and it worked,
    D:\downloads\database>setup -jreLoc "C:\Java\jdk1.7.0_51"

  • Problem in connecting to Oracle 8 database through Oracle 11g client ?

    Database : Oracle 8
    Client Machine :
    Oracle 11g
    Microsoft ODBC Driver for Oracle
    I am using Oracle 11g client to connect Oracle 8 database using Microsoft ODBC Driver for Oracle but I am getting error when after entered the password
    Run-time error '40002':
    IM006: [Microsoft][ODBC Driver Manager] Driver's SQLSetConnectAttr failed
    I am using VB6 application on Windows 7 and I created DSN using Microsoft ODBC Driver for Oracle but I got the above error when I try to connect to Database.
    Please help me out on this that why this error is coming
    Amit Panwar

    Provided its a 32-bit application, possibly. Microsoft ODBC for Oracle is discontinued and has no 64-bit version, so a 64-bit application won't be able to use it at all.
    I do see it listed as a 32-bit ODBC driver on my Windows 7. The problem is that I think it relies on having an Oracle client installed on the machine, and you've got the same problem of Oracle client 11 not working with 8 server. You could try it and see if it works I suppose, or try installing an older client and see if that makes it work.
    If it's just for testing purposes though you could throw up an Oracle XE server and test against that.

  • Windows 7, Oracle 11g Client Post-Installation Error

    Hello all--
    Background Info:
    - I have installed Oracle 11g Client (32-bit) on my Windows 7 Professional (32-bit) workstation.
    - The ORACLE_HOME directory (in my case C:\Oracle\Ora11g) is in the PATH environment variable.
    - I have created TNS_ADMIN as an environment variable that points to a network folder that contains our tnsnames.ora and sqlnet.ora.
    - I can tnsping our servers and sqlplus connects without issue.
    - I am logged in as a regular network user (added into the local Administrators group on my machine).
    The problem is that I cannot connect using a user or system DSN in the Microsoft ODBC Administrator, BUT, I can connect with a DSN when I am logged in with the local Administrator account. I have verified the DSNs are setup correctly. The error I get is the ORA-12154 error.
    Here is the exact error as it appears:
    Unable to connect
    [Oracle][ODBC][Ora]ORA-12154: TNS:could not resolve the connect identifier specified
    If I copy the tnsnames.ora file from the network to my machine and remove/redirect TNS_ADMIN to the %ORACLE_HOME%\NETWORK\ADMIN folder, it works with my user account.
    Any thoughts?

    Hi All--
    I figured out what the problem was and I wanted to share what our solution was.
    Basically, when you open the Microsoft ODBC Administrator in Windows 7, it has to run with elevated privileges and loads the Administrator profile. Our tnsnames.ora and sqlnet.ora files are on a network share that we map to a drive letter for all users across our organization. The Administrator profile does not have this drive mapping. So I created the TNS_ADMIN environment variable with the full UNC path and I was able to test DSNs successfully.
