Oracle Database 10.2.0.5.0 Client software is not available for download on https://edelivery.oracle.com.
Please open an service request on My Oracle Support and ask for an media or a temporary link for the download.
Welcome to the forums !
Pl identify exact versions of "10gR2" and Windows 7. The only certified combination is 10.2.0.5 on Win 7 Professional or higher. Home version of Windows is not supported. Using uncertifed combinations will result in the software not working as advertised.
See http://docs.oracle.com/cd/B19306_01/relnotes.102/b14264/toc.htm#CIHCFAGA (see Step 4 - the 10.2.0.5 patch can only be downloaded by paying support customers at https://support.oracle.com)
Thanks for your reply. The first link on that document you linked on your post is broken:
Would you know the correct link?
Since 10gR2 is now out of premier support, publicly available download links have been removed. If you have a support contract with Oracle, pl open an SR. If not, you will have to download one of the publicly available versions.
Oracle's desperate market behavior reminds me of Microsoft's...

I too facing same problem. Since exp utility is not back-ward compatible. I was receiving error ORA-904 POLTYP invalid identifier.
I went to my oracle support could not find the patch for bug id Bug 756835.
We would need to download Oracle 10g client for this purpose atleast.
Pl open an SR with Support - they will provide you with a private link assuming you have paid for extended support for 10g
I subscribe to what Harvs said.
That kind of "regulation" simply blocks the learning of Oracle versions properly.
