I have couple of clients (users) looking for ODBC 64 driver for Oracle in windows 7 64 bit. They have Oracle 10g 32 bit installed. In environment, oracle 64 bit is not compitable with some of measure software they use, so need to utilize 32 bit. But they have a software 64 bit requires to have 64 bit ODBC oracle driver (not from C:\Windows\SysWOW64\odbcad32.exe) but from administrative tools and Data Sources (ODBC).
i had downloaded from here http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/database/windows/downloads/index-090165.html
under 64-bit Oracle 10g Release 2 ODAC 10.2.0.3 for Windows x64
But when i tried to run, it is giving me error message "Java(TM) 2 Platform Standard Edition binary has stopped working"
So i had download 64 bit Java 6 standard edition. no luck...same error.
Like to know how can i install ODBC 64 oracle Driver?
thanks in advance
I had the same problem and I could solve it this way :
When the installer crash, click on debug the program, select visual studio for debugging.
Then choose continue in the pop up windows.
Then the installer continue and you can install the ODAC.
it doesn't give me an option to debug the program.
"Java(TM) 2 Platform standard Edition binary has stopped working"
"A problem caused the program to stop working correctly. windows will close the program and notify you if a soulutions is available"
and has CLOSE PROGRAM button...thats it.
why ODAC 10.2.0.3? (it doesnt include ODBC driver according to the homepage)
download instant client (50 MB) + ODBC option (1,5MB) from:
extract to same directory, run odbc_install.exe to register the driver, and its done
no extra installation required
Hi Balazs, thanks for your reply.
i have downloaded and extracted
Instant Client Package - Basic: All files required to run OCI, OCCI, and JDBC-OCI applications
instantclient-basic-win-x86-64-10.2.0.3.0.zip (35,861,905 bytes)
*Instant Client Package - ODBC: Additional libraries for enabling ODBC applications
instantclient-odbc-win-x86-64-10.2.0.3.0.zip (744,283 bytes)
into same folder. When I ran odbc_install.exe, i am getting "Could't find Oracle Instant Client in present directory."
Not sure what i am doing wrong.
thanks in advance
