I'm trying to install Oracle ODBC driver on Windows XP with no success.
I downloaded version 10.1.0.5 first, ran ORA10105.EXE, which unzipped everything.
From readme.txt, it says to run Oracle Universal Installer.
On the screen "File Locations" use the "Browse" button of
the source path to choose the file 'products.jar' from the
folder that ORA10105.EXE was extracted to. Choose 'Next'.
But I can not find products.jar under the folder ORA10105 or any subfolder at all.
Then I downloaded version 10.2.0.2, same thing, now products.jar.
Then I downloaded version 10.2.0.3, readme.txt:
1. a. ORA10203\bin\sqora32.dll ---> <ORACLE_HOME>\bin
b. ORA10203\bin\sqoras32.dll ---> <ORACLE_HOME>\bin
c. ORA10203\bin\sqresus.dll ---> <ORACLE_HOME>\bin
2. a. ORA10203\ODBC\html\ODBCRelnotesUS.htm ---> <ORACLE_HOME>\ODBC\html\
b. ORA10203\ODBC\readme.txt ---> <ORACLE_HOME>\ODBC\html\
3. ORA10203\ODBC\mesg\oraodbus.msb ---> <ORACLE_HOME>\ODBC\mesg\
I did first step, copied the 3 files to C:\oracle\product\10.2.0\client\BIN. But can't do step 2 and 3 because there is no ODBC directory under ORACLE_HOME.
