oci is either oci7 or oci8 everything above 8 is still oci8

oci8 links to oci.lib which inturn will use ora80x.dll for 8 clients,  and oraclientx.dll for 8i and above.

I apologize for not responding sooner. Although it has been more time on this, if possible can you let me know why am I able to connect using only oci, what does that default to. Thanks again for your patience and for such great help

depends on what you're doing, and what your oracle homes are and which home you're using, and what the sqlnet set up is in each home and if the oci drivers are installed and which are installed in each home.
And what the error is you see when you try and fail.
