I installed SQL Developer 4.0 for windows 32-bit. I kept getting "Status: Failure - Test Failed: Unsupported Oracle database version" when trying to make TNS connection to remote Oracle databases. Does anyone have any solution?
I have Oracle Instant Client 126.96.36.199.0 which I downloaded from Oracle website and extracted the zip file to C:\Program Files\Oracle\instantclient_11_2. The ‘tnsnames.ora’ file has been posted to this folder as well.
The following values I set under Preferences|Database|Advanced,
· Use Oracle client – Instant Client: file:/C:/Program Files/Oracle/instantclient_11_2/
· Tnsnames Directory – C:\Program Files\Oracle\instantclient_11_2
I have manually added “C:\Program Files\Oracle\instantclient_11_2” to the PATH and TNS_ADMIN.
Do I need anything else to make a successful TNS connection?
Platform: Windows 7 32-bit
