I want to connect to an Oracle 8i enterprise edition database. I want to install Oracle client on a windows Vista machine.
Should I install any patch after the client installation? Can I connect to Oracle 8i DB using newer version of client software?
Please send the download link for Oracle 8i client to use from a windows machine.
Only V11 software is supported & freely available.
However V11 is NOT compatible with V8!
As mention here you are trying to desupported product. Please review:
