    Oracle 8i enterprise edition - client installation

    712734
      Hi,

      I want to connect to an Oracle 8i enterprise edition database. I want to install Oracle client on a windows Vista machine.

      Should I install any patch after the client installation? Can I connect to Oracle 8i DB using newer version of client software?

      Please send the download link for Oracle 8i client to use from a windows machine.


      Thanks
      Ashok

          V8 is obsoleted & unsupported.
          Only V11 software is supported & freely available.
          However V11 is NOT compatible with V8!
