    Need to download Oracle 10g client - 64 bit

    769160
      I have to move many of my applications to a new server, and this one is a win2008, 64-bit system.
      So... I need to download the oracle 10g client - but 64-bit version, and SQL Plus.
      But I can't find it. I found 2 big files under databases for 11g, but I want the client; I don't want to set up a new database system. I just want to install the client so my software can continue to talk to existing databases.

      Thanks,

      Jon

              So all apps will be compiled for 64-bit target?

              If apps are 32-bit their libraries (e.g. Oracle Client libs) are 32-bit also - regardless if host system is 64-bit or not.

              But I can't find it. I found 2 big files under databases for 11g, but I want the client; ...

              Use the See All links to find the Database Client media, or direct link (for 11.2, win32)

              However - simplest way of supplying OCI libraries is by Instant Client.
              It's just a few files and not even a real "install", just drop the files in PATH or in same folder as app executable file.
              http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/database/features/instant-client/index-097480.html
              (and if you find it's not suitable for your specific apps, then you could always remove and install the traditional Client package)

              If you have ODP.Net, Asp.Net or OLE DB apps, then look for the ODAC package with Xcopy Deployment. It builds on Instant Client (and it is included).
