Hi everybody,

The following error message occured when i connected from a client 11.2.0 (64 bits) to a database installing with a 10g 64 bits.
"Test connection failed because of an error in initializing provider. Oracle client and networking components were not found. These components are supplied by Oracle Corporation and are part of the Oracle Version 7.3.3 or later client software installation.
Provider is unable to function until these components are installed.
"

Is there any requirement like the client has to be installed with a 32 bits version of oracle because Windows restrictions?

------------------
The current config:
The server: Windows 2008 (64 bits) with Oracle 10g (64 bits).
The client: Windiws 2003 (64 bits) with Oracle 11.2.0 (64 bits).

Thx in advance for your replies.
Sak.

How did you try to connect? With which API? JDBC, ODBC, OCI?

Hello,
The connection could be done with installing a 32 bits version for the client.
Thanks in advance.

Is this a question? If so, yes you can connect to a 64bit DB with a 32bit client, I do it every day.
