          Start a SR on MOS and request the download.

          Is there a special reason for you to use the 10g client?
          You can always use the 11g client to connect to 10g databases


          Success

            Hi JFranken,

            Yes I got a request specifically asking us to install 10g version of client.

            Thanks

              That doesn't mean you can't explain to the requestor that 10g is out of support and the 11g client is current. Ask them why they specifically want 10g. Their reasons may be invalid. As a dba, it's our job to ask those questions and advise on best practices.

                Yes all 10g software is gone from OTN and even from edelivery.

                I found a reference link in a MOS doc
                How To Install Oracle 10.2.0.5 Client Software on Windows 7 (32 or 64-bit) and Windows 2008 R2 (64-bit) [ID 1316079.1]
                but that did not help.

                You need to request it from oracle support or get it from somebody who have a local copy...

                BTW I agree with Ed. Try to convince requester to use 11g.
