Trying to deploy instantclient 188.8.131.52 w/ODBC on Windows XP.
Unzipped files to c:\oracle\instantclient_11_2.
Added c:\oracle\instantclient_11_2 to path.
Created/set TNS_ADMIN environment variable.
Running windows ODBC Data Source Administrator to add Oracle data source gives following error:
"The setup routines for the Oracle in instantclient_11_2 ODBC driver could not be loaded due to system error code 14001."
Click OK. Next dialog box says:
"Could not load the setup or translator library."
The instantclient 184.108.40.206 distribution works fine with the same setup procedure. I'm not new to instantclient--been using it for at least a year with great success. Just trying to use the latest version of the instantclient software on this computer. I also notice that the 220.127.116.11 base distribution includes a number of dll files that are not included with the 18.104.22.168 base distribution. These include a number of mfc*.dll and msv*.dll files. Does instantclient no longer support XP installs as of the 22.214.171.124 release? Did Oracle forget to include a bunch of dll files in the base 126.96.36.199 window x86 distribution? Did the deployment procedure change between 188.8.131.52 and 184.108.40.206? Am I installing 220.127.116.11 incorrectly?
We can fall back to the 18.104.22.168 distribution temporarily. But I'd like to get the newest 22.214.171.124 distribution working for our XP computers.
Thank you for your assistance.
I've no idea about the reason but I can confirm that the latest Instant Client Version is not supported by XP.
I've tried a win7 install and evrything works fine with 126.96.36.199.0 version;
on XP I need to use 188.8.131.52.0 version.
