I got a popup window saying
The procedure entry point slzgetevar cannot be located in the dynamic link library oracore8.dll
My database is 8.1.6. This happens after I install Client 8i onto the same home on my c: drive. Something probably overwrote original files..
This is probably unrelated, but I read a press release about Oracle refusing to certify on Windows 2000. They said they will support tho'. Just a thought to consider fpr production systems.
This is only for my test system.
I have installed Oracle 8.1.6 on the same home of 8.1.5 earlier on Windows 2000 Server and Advanced Server with no problems at all , it is fully compatible with Windows 2000.
Also Avoid installing client software on the same home of Oracle Server , Install client Software on Separated home if needed on the same Oracle Box.
Just try to reinstall Oracle parts via Universal Installer , just remove the check mark and then re-install Oracle Engine itself.
It seems that You have a faulty or lost dll file no more.
