Has anyone tried intalling both the ODAC .net developer tools for Visual Studio and the Oracle 10g/11g developer tools suite for OAS on the same Window 7 64bit pc?
I am going to be working on both Microsoft iis applications and Oracle oas applications that use an Oracle database. I have the ODAC and VS working fine. I have SqlDeveloper running fine. Now, I need to add Forms/Reports builder.
Any advice before installation would be much appreciated!
The "potential problem" with multiple homes is that some apps/drivers/utilities load the Oracle client based on your PATH environment variable. ODP however, does not, so should continue to work fine once you add a new home (which will result in the new home being put to the front of your PATH before the old home).
Perhaps someone else who has tried it can respond with their results.
