my environment is:
MS Windows 2003 R2 SP2 Enterprise x64 Edition
Oracle Database 10g Release 10.2.0.1.0 - 64bit Production
and I want to use:
TOAD for Oracle Freeware - version 184.108.40.206 g (from Quest Software)
my "path" variable is as below:
C:\Documents and Settings\Administrator.SERVER2003>set path
At location "C:\oracle\product\10.2.0\db_1\bin\" I can see "oci.dll"
BUT... when I try to connect to my database... from TOAD... I get the message below. Cannot load OCI DLL: C:\oracle\product\10.2.0\db_1\bin\oci.dll
Using "netca" or "sqlplus" I can connect to the database with success.
this should be the cause. I have Oracle Database 10g Release 10.2.0.1.0 - 64bit Production. Then all the executables including DLLs are 64-bit version compiled. Now... I guess that the TOAD software is 32-bit application and it can not load 64-bit OCI.DLL.
Thanks to EVERYBODY evolved!!!
By the way:
The TOAD for Oracle Freeware - version 220.127.116.11 g (from Quest Software) is the latest version available from Quest Software.
I am having this issue.
I have Oracle 11g 64 Bit client and server. And using Toad 18.104.22.168. And getting this error.
But getting this error:
Cannot load OCI DLL: D:\app\product\11.1.0\db_1\BIN\oci.dll
So should we install a 32 bit Oracle client for this?
Yes. You've to install 32 bit oracle client.
Toad 22.214.171.124 is a 32 bit application and will only work with the 32 bit Oracle client. Install 32 bit Oracle client and it will work like a charm.

I have got a Microsoft Windows Server 2003 R2 and x64 Edition.
Now I installed Toad 10.5.1.3 [Toad for Oracle Professional].
When I try to connect to the database iI get the Errormessage:
Cannot load OCI DLL D:\oracle\product\10.2.0\db_1\BIN\oci.dll
What's the Problem?
I thought Toad 10 is x64 compatible?
Thanks for responding.
