    Oracle XE 11g and Oracle Client 10.2.0.3

    dgcl

      Hello everybody.

      I have a problem and I would like to ask for help.

      Thanks in advance.

      My problem is as follow.

       

      I have a laptop with windows 7, which has installed the Oracle Client 10g 10.2.0.3.

      It has the environment variable TNS_ADMIN which point to a path in the network.

       

      Then I installed the Oracle Xpress 11g.

      It created the path c:\oraclexe\app\oracle\product\11.2.0\server\network\ADMIN\

       

      When I do a tnsping XE it works perfectly, even when I connect through sqlplus it's OK.

      But, when I try to connect to the Oracle XE through an application it doesn't connect to the database Oracle XE

      Any help will be very appreciated it.

      Does somebody know what should I do?

          when I try to connect to the Oracle XE through an application it doesn't connect to the database Oracle XE

          Too generic.

           

           

          - which application ?

          - where is the application ? on the same machine, or different ?

          - how does it connect to the database ? (tnsnames or what else)

          - which exact Oracle error code do you get ?
