I have oracle 126.96.36.199 installed on Solaris & Windows machines, so I understand that I can apply the patch oracle 188.8.131.52 or higher. But is this the only way to use oracle 184.108.40.206 or higher on Solaris 8 & Windows Server 2003??
What if I do not have access to Metalink to download the pacth?
