We rolled a new windows xp pc to replace a very old one.
The old PC is running a congos impromptu application and the
data is on a oracle server.
I have been trying to install the cognos application on the new PC.
I am using the same software that was installed on the old PC
Oracle client 8.1 and congos version 5.
I have installed Oracle Client 8.1 and have tested the connection
to an oracle database with sqlplus and it connects.
I have installed congos impromptu version 5 and ran the sample jobs and it runs fine.
I set up the ODBC connection with the same name that is used in the
However when I go to test the connection via congos I get the following error
Error number -45:
DMS-E-YV_SGINOTSUPP, The database type 'attach database' associated with the database name '2' is not supported.
DMS-E-DBDLL_NOTFOUND, The dynamic link library '<unknown>, check INI file' could not be located in the search path.
I have read other post on this site with this same issue but the resolution
to this either was not posted back or did not apply
Any one have any idea .. or wish to email me and I can send screen prints
If that would help … Hope to chat with someone soon.
Unfortunately I do not yet have the answer to this myself but am faced with a similar challenge. I can start up Impromptu 5 no problem on XP, and connect to a Oracle 9.2 database using ODBC (as opposed to an Oracle configuration - the use of the Oracle connection (from within Impromptu) was throwing the errors you mentioned for me).
It's when I attempt to open an exisitng catalog (that is also configured with the same ODBC connect data) that I have a problem. It throws an error that there is an error with the catalog - not too helpful.
In Impromptu did you try using ODBC instead of the Oracle configuraton?
