    Arrow ODBC connection from Win98 to Oracle Server ?

    I need to connect to an Oracle database server from a windows 98 client.

    1. Can I do this with the native drivers provided by windows 98 without installing any client Oracle software ? (using Microsoft OBBC)

    2. What are the 3rd party (also share ware/free ware) drivers, if any, to connect from windows 98 client to Oracle database software ?

    Thanks.

    You need Net8 (formerly SQL*Net) and ODBC driver. The driver can be from Microsoft, Oracle or any other vendor.

    Does this 'microsoft ODBC for oracle' get installed by default when windows 98 is installed or should you install any other microsoft products like ms-office, etc. to get this ??

    So, I need Oracle Net8 + Microsoft ODBC driver

    ( or )

    any vendor Net8 + any vendor ODBC driver

    Can you please quote some vendors other than Microsoft & Oracle. (Coz., we foresee some licensing issues)

    Thanks.

    P.S.: I suppose Net8 is proprietary to Oracle. Right?

    Net8 is Oracle product.
    AFAIK ODBC drivers are free and you can download it from Oracle web site.

    Hi

    How about this ms ODBC being installed for Windows 95 ? Is it a extra patch ?

    Thanks.

    We have in the discussion for the WINDOWS 98 CONNECTION for oracle.

    But the patches for the connection on windows 95 is the one established one have not problems. Whereas, windows 98 have several bugs on connecting to the databases and has failed to activate.

    It is better either you should switch to windows 95 or NT for better performance in connectivity.

    Ok.

    How about the oracle 8i on XP?

    Any drawbacks?

    The issue was sorted out by installing

    1. DCOM95 for windows 95,
    2. MDAC 2.5 SP1 &
    3. Oracle basic networking components.

    Thanks.
