I am getting an Oracle error message when trying to log on to the database.

I have an PB app that logs on to an Oracle Database.
The compiled app runs fine on my system even though I access from a net drive.

When users go to access the app I get an error 999 DBMS O84 Oracle 8.0.4 is not supported in current installation. Any Ideas on what this could be?
The .ini is located in the same folder as the .exe. The Oracle client has been checked and seem to be OK.

Because the initial login screen comes up which is done in PB I don't think its PB related.

This is a copy of the app .ini file.

Hi,

to test connection to the database use tnsping (may be tnsping80) program. (It is in oracle \bin folder)

tnsping80 vmis

you should check tnsnames.ora file in your clients. It should have a definition for vmis. (tnsnames.ora is in network\admin folder)

regards.
