What is the difference between installing oracle instant client using OUI(as part of oracle client) and download only Oracle instant client zip , extract in one folder.
OCCI Application working fine when I installed oracle client through OUI, but it is not working for other case.
Could you please tell me what is the exact difference.
Instant Client allows you to run your applications without installing the standard Oracle client or having an ORACLE_HOME. OCI, OCCI, Pro*C, ODBC, and JDBC applications work without modification, while using significantly less disk space than before. Even SQL*Plus can be used with Instant Client. No recompile, no hassle.
Thank you very much.
Application working fine with Oracle Instant client but I installed Oracle client using OUI , Option of Oracle client installation.
Where as if I download Oracle instant client zip and extract application is not working.
Is there any difference installing Instant client with OUI and zip file.?
I tried with 10.2.0.5 Instant Client. But there is no luck.
Still I am wondering If I install Oracle Instant Client with OUI application working fine.. but if I download only Instant client zip from OTN and unzip ( Set the path and TNS_ADMIN) application not able to connect.
It must be a setup problem of some kind.
Could you detail how it "is not working"?
What you do, exact error messages and the like.
What Oracle software is installed on the machine?
What are the values of the environment variables ORACLE_HOME, TNS_ADMIN, LDAP_ADMIN, NLS_* and ORA_*?
What other software is used?
Thank you very much for response.
SW Details : Oracle 126.96.36.199 Instant client.zip for windows xp-sp3 -- With its not working
Oracle 188.8.131.52 Client OUI using If I install Instant Client - it is working
ORACLE_HOME = F:\app\oracle\instantclient_11_2 (not required for Oracle Instant Client)
path = F:\app\oracle\instantclient_11_2 (added in path)
TNS_ADMIN = F:\app\oracle\instantclient_11_2
I am unable to execute my OCCI application in a target system.
I have done the following deployment steps in the target system.
1) Downloaded "Oracle Instant Client Basic" and "SQLPlus" packages.
2) Added the unzipped location to the system PATH variable.
3) I am able to connect Oracle Server Database using "sqlplus" command.
While executing my OCCI application, the oracle environment is not creating. It is giving exception with junk error codes.
"Unable to Create Oracle Environment, *└±↕"*
/* create oracle environment */
m_oOracleEnvironment = oracle::occi::Environment::createEnvironment(oracle::occi::Environment::DEFAULT);
m_StrError = "Unable to Create Oracle Environment, ";
m_StrError += e.getMessage();
Note: When i am installing "Instant Client" package from the Oracle Client UI setup, it is working fine.
This could be an environment variable problem.
Could you post all anvironment variables at the time the code is executed?
Also, when you get the error with the Instant Client from the ZIP file, is the other Instant Client or any other Oracle software still installed? If yes, where?
