Does instant client works on windows 8?
I have windows 8 x32 Release Preview, oracle instant client basic-nt 22.214.171.124 and launch error "Error while trying to retrieve text for error ORA-01019."
PS: It works fine with same settings of environment variables on windows 7 (ORACLE_HOME, TNS_ADMIN, PATH).
-We are using the Oracle instant client from a .NET 4.0 application.
-In the connectionstring we set the provider to MSDAORA.
-This worked fine in XP, Vista and 7.
The error seems to be occurring before a connection is even made; entering a bogus host or username produces this error instantly.
We are aware of newer drivers/providers but these seem to have their own quirks (carriage return in queries causes errors, seriously??), while MSDAORA has always served us well until we encountered this problem.
