Hi all,

After I developed the application, I use ADO to access Oracle database.

I want to install my application to the client computer, which already have Oracle client on it. The client computer is Windows 98. I already install MDAC 2.6 on it.

When I run the application, after enter the user/password the error shows "Provider cannot be found. It may not be properly installed".

Where do I have to config??

Thank you

guessing you must configure it with the odbc-administrator

Hi,

Have you checked that the OLE-DB provider for Oracle is available on the client machine ?

Best regards,

Hi,
mnasman:
I already configured the Net8, and I can use sqlplus on the client.

How to check OLE-DB provider for Oracle in the client machine.

On my development machine, I didn't configure the ODBC and it works. I think the ODBC is not related. Am I correct?

Thank you for all comments

you are right, you don't need the ODBC, but from your error messages, I think the oracle driver not working good, try to reinstall the MDAC

Hi,

Somewhere on your harddisk create a new file and give it a name and .UDL as extension.  Now in your explorer double click on that file.  This will open the Data Link properties screen.  In the provider tab select your OLE-DB provider for oracle and configure the rest to connect to your DB.  Try to test the connection, and if it works ADO is installed correctly and you have a connection to your DB.

If it doesn't work, then you will have to check some things out, like can the client access the server, ...

Best regards,


Stefaan
