There is no "normal" client available anywhere on the oracle site,
http://download.oracle.com/docs/cd/B19306_01/server.102/b14196/network005.htm#CIHJHJGJ says to use Oracle Net Manager to configure networking for the instant client,Where does it say Instant Client?
and also copied the tnsping.exe from elsewhere,Randomly copying files across Oracle installations is obviously not supported.
Please use an appropriate install package instead. If you need admin tools, I would suggest the complete Client with the 'Administrator' install type.
However, for normal apps needing basic OCI/Net connectivity libraries and for easy deployment, Instant Client is very well suited.
