My computer OS is the Windows7 bits-64.
I would like to use the Oracle Instant Client 11g in my computer. I have downloaded "instantclient-basic-windows.x64-126.96.36.199.0" and "instantclient-odbc-windows.x64-188.8.131.52.0" and extract to the same folder.
I run the "odbc_install" to install it. I have set the "PATH" environment variable.
After that, when I create the ODBC system DNS, the error message is poped up.
"The Setup rountines for the Oracle in instantclient_11_2 ODBC driver could not be loaded due to system error code 14001: The application has failed to start because its side-by-side configuration is incorrect. Please see the application event log or use the command-line sxstrace.exe tool for more detail.(..\SQORAS32.DLL)."
I have checked the event log that shows the following message:
"Activation context generation failed for "C:\Program Files\Oracle Client\SQORAS32.DLL". Dependent Assembly Microsoft.VC80.MFC,processorArchitecture="amd64",publicKeyToken="1fc8b3b9a1e18e3b",type="win32",version="8.0.50727.762" could not be found. Please use sxstrace.exe for detailed diagnosis."
Some ppl said that install the "Microsoft Visual C++ 2005 Redistributable Package (x86)" could solve this error. However, I have installed from 2005 to 2010 both x64 and x86, the problem is still not fixed.
I've downloaded the instant client file and ODBC driver file but no install file, only .JAR files !!!...
How did you download your file please ???...
Note : i got these files :
- ODBC driver - Oracle 10.1.exe ( 10.1 10.2 9.01 and 9.02 )
Nowhere install.exe or .bat !!!...
Thanks for your help ...
