Why use an old, unsupported version?
Why not remove that and try the latest 11.2 version.
Thanks for the reply.
The Oracle Server I want to connect to is running 10.2.0.3. Will the 11.2 client work with it?
Two dimensions of compatibility/requirements:
Vertically - This is your application, APIs, .Net, operating system etc. that may define requirements on Oracle Client version, and vice versa.
Horisontally - "on the wire" or connectivity wise - Oracle certifies client - server interoperability at least two releases or major versions back/apart, so yes, 10.2 is/was* supported. See MOS interoperability matrix for your specific case.
(*was since 10.2 Database is out of support or even Extended support by now. Perhaps it is time to upgrade the server side also ;-))
I need to connect to Oracle via ODBC from an application I am developing for this client. I will check with the 11.2 instant client and hope that it works.
I will appreciate if you have a link for the "MOS interoperability matrix".
