    Unanswered: Oracle client

    Hey,
    Im new to Oracle.
    Im using Toad editor to connect the Oracle DB.
    (my machine is Windows 2003 server 64bit)
    What component\client I need to install just for enabling the connection to the oracle? (I dont want to install an Oracle DB just a client).
    Can you please refer me to the right client? (couldnt find it in the Oracle homepage)

    Thanks

    You didn't look carefully enough. Downloads are here. If you read it once again, you'll notice that
    See All, page contains unzip instructions plus Database Client, Gateways, Grid Infrastructure, more
    My Oracle Support says that
    Oracle Database Client 11.2.0.2.0 is certified on Microsoft Windows x64 (64-bit) 2003
    That should do it, I guess.

    Oracle client

    Hey,
    Thanks for replaying.

    "Oracle Database 11g Release 2
    Standard Edition, Standard Edition One, and Enterprise Edition"

    Are you sure that this is not a whole DB software, but just a client for connecting the DB?

    thanks..

    A page you are viewing contains quite a few links. Choose the "Microsoft Windows (x64)" one and click "See All" link. It will open a new page with many products - you should select "Oracle Database 11g Release 2 Client (11.2.0.1.0) for Microsoft Windows (x64)".

    Or, check the Instant Client (as suggested by @rski).
