Hi I am new to this python and Oracle. I am also encountering the same error.
I wish to connect to a database located on another machine using python from my machine. I dont have Oracle installed on my system but it is there on that remote machine.
I am also encountering the same error.
Right now I am using Oracle SQLdeveloper to connect to that database . But I wish to do the same using a python script.
Can you please help me with this error .
I have :-
python :- 2.6.5
Error which I encounter :-
Traceback (most recent call last):
File "<pyshell#1>", line 1, in <module>
ImportError: DLL load failed: The specified procedure could not be found.
You will need C-language based Oracle "client" libraries installed on your local machine. (SQL Developer uses Java libraries). To connect to a remote database you can install the Oracle Instant Client from http://www.oracle.com/technology/tech/oci/instantclient/index.html Download and unzip the Instant Client "basic" package, add the directory to your PATH environment variable, reboot and run your script again.
