muthyala_51, thanks for the extra detail, worked great!

I can add that, in my case:
  • I didn't need to reboot after the base Oracle client nor the ODAC drivers

  • I did need to add the ORACLE_HOME environment variable, but the system path already contained the ..\client_1\bin folder. I did not add the \client_1 to the path

  • It looks like my 11gR2 client is version The ODAC version that I downloaded was found here:
    For some reason, when I first navigated to the drivers page, I could find the x86 and the x64 client installs, but the ODAC links only pointed to the 32-bit drivers... had to search for the 64 bit flavor.

    When you make the changes to the registry do I need to restart the server?

    Kindest Regards,

    Does anyone have a definitive answer for this? This is an absolute nightmare.
