Dear all, I'm not able to turn on instant client in EA3 to use Thick/OCI driver. No matter which instant client is installed 11g or 12c the - Preferences GUI says in new dialog window "The client home <my path> is not on the PATH". Test button in configure client path dialog doesn;t produce any result at all.
Previously was using EA2 and such issue didn;t occur there with x64 18.104.22.168 instant client.
Using Win7 x86_64, Instant client is also for x64 Win. Has anybody expreienced the same issue?

This is typical Oracle
My first post here, hope I do not get banned for the above line.
Anyway, guys, try to put your path to Oracle Home or Instant Client as FIRST path in your PATH environment variable. Apparently Oracle does not read PATH beyond the first component of the variable.
I believe there are still a few wrinkles left to be ironed out with the Client integration with SQL Developer 4. The developer is aware of these and is working on improving the experience for our next update. I've attempted to explain and describe the process for successfully getting the Instant Client going here.
