    Unanswered: Oracle Instant Client and MS OLE DB

    Hi,

    I installed the Oracle instant 10 client (tested it with the sqlplus-tool, you can extra install. Connection succeeds. Now I wanted to test an connection with Microsoft Ole DB provider for Oracle, but when using test connection button, I get the message it can't find any of the Oracle components. What do I have to do more to get it working. I don't want to install a whole Oracle CD on it, can it work with the Instant client. Do I have to change some things in the register so the system knows where Oracle is?

    in Oracle documentation I found this: To use the Microsoft ODBC and OLEDB driver, ociw32.dll must also be copied from ORACLE_HOME\bin.

    but when copying that dll to my instantclient path, nothing changes (also that file already exists, only difference in bytes).


    thanks.

    does anybody knows maybe where the Microsoft OLEDB provider for Oracle register/dectects somewhere that an Oracle client is installed?

    There must be something that is knows that the Oracle client is available?

    thanks.
