Oracle ODBC driver Installation

I want to install Oracle ODBC drivers on client machine. For this i have installed Oracle 10g client software on users machine. After installation i am not able to see any oracle ODBC drivers on System DSN/create new data source.

In regedit file no oracle drivers available (ODBCINST.INI).

I have followed below link to install oracle client software.

After installing client, is there any extra steps i have to follow for drivers installation?

It is an windows platform.

Maybe you have a corrupt installer file?

Try to re download and re install.

Hi ry_berk,

I have downloaded from below link

http://www.oracle.com/technology/software/products/database/oracle10g/htdocs/10201winsoft.html

so there is no way of corruption in file.

Have you tried to look here for only the driver download?

When you ran the installer what options did you select?  I don't think ODBC is a default option with the regular Oracle client.

If you only need the ODBC driver, I suggest the Instant Client:

You will need the Base and ODBC downloads.

That shouldn't matter.  As long as you install the ODBC provider you should be able to see it in the create DSN list.

Microsoft ODBC for Oracle is a different driver though. Check to see that you have that one.

ry_berk,

check out http:#30639583.

They want the Oracle ODBC driver not the Microsoft ODBC driver for Oracle.
