D:\instantclient_11_2 (64)

cx_oracle is installed at c:\python3.3 folder for windows64 bit

    Did you set PATH to the Instant Client directory and reboot?

    Cannot help with Windows related installation issues, but did you try uppercase 'O' in cx_Oracle.

    [wrong - lowercase 'o']

    In [7]: import cx_oracle


    ImportError                               Traceback (most recent call last)

    <ipython-input-7-fa7af752f8a0> in <module>()

    ----> 1 import cx_oracle

    ImportError: No module named cx_oracle

    [correct - uppercase 'O']

    In [1]: import cx_Oracle

    In [8]: dir(cx_Oracle)
