    SP2-1503: Unable to initialize Oracle call interface after accidently inst.

    user7857381
      I have had a working 64bit Win Client (only client) and I am working with ADMIN Account.

      After an accidently installation of ODBC in another oracle home I removed the second home manually
      http://docs.oracle.com/cd/B28359_01/install.111/b32007/deinstall.htm#CIHGGGBB
      and changed the path variable to the first home

      tnsping works
      sql developer works

      but sql*plus doesn't work

      it throw:

      SP2-1503: Unable to initialize Oracle call interface
      SP2-0152: ORACLE may not be functioning properly


      after this I deinstalled the first client with the deinstall batch and reinstalled the client
      but the same error orrures (with admin account)

      SP2-1503: Unable to initialize Oracle call interface
      SP2-0152: ORACLE may not be functioning properly

      tnsping works
      sql developer works

      I am able to recover the system by windows restore point
      but it is: to take a sledgehammer to crack a nut

      Is there another solution to fix the problem?

      thanks in advance
