Sorry, but that didn't answer the question.
I'll second because I have wondered about the same thing.
The documentation seems to be contradictory.
The question is:
Which character sets (as set with NLS_LANG) does Instant Client Lite support?
All the West European ones (e.g. WE8ISO8859P15) or only a subset?
I suggest using the AMERICAN_AMERICA.WE8ISO8859P1 setting in the NLS_LANG paramether. I have been using it with Basic Lite and there are no problem.
I ask for the WE8ISO8859P1 character set support and here is the answer I got: Re: Instant Client Lite Charactet set question
In my case I set NLS_LANG=AMERICAN_AMERICA.WE8ISO8859P1 is the windows registry key HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\ORACLE and I copy Instant Client and ODBC files in c:\windows\system32 and It works well...
I hope that helps......
