We have a VB6 application that access Oracle database
using 9.2 client.   When we try to run this application using a
10g client, we experience problems with database
connections getting dropped, application hangs, etc.

We'd prefer to use the 10g client, but we are not sure what
needs to be changed in order to get it to work.

Example below of logic we are using to create db connections
in app...
Set mvarSession = CreateObject("OracleInProcServer.xOraSession")

Set mvarConnection = Nothing
    Set mvarConnection = New RDO.rdoConnection
    sAltersession = "ALTER SESSION SET OPTIMIZER_MODE=RULE"
    With mvarConnection
        .Connect = "uid=" & sUserID _
                & ";pwd=" & sPassword _
                & ";DSN=" & sRemoteDatabase & ";"
        .CursorDriver = rdUseClientBatch
        .EstablishConnection rdDriverNoPrompt
        .Execute sAltersession
    End With

Do you have the correct version of the Oracle InProc Server installed?

We've used the "Oracle InProc Server 2.3 Type Library" referenced by our VB project and use the OraSession and OraDatabase objects.

Dim WS as OraSession
Dim DB as OraDatabase
Set WS = CreateObject("OracleInProcServer.XOraSession")
Set DB = WS.OpenDatabase( DatabaseName, UserID & "/" & Password, ORADB_DEFAULT)
DB.ExecuteSQL("ALETER SESSION SET NLS_DATE_FORMAT = 'MM/DD/RRRR HH:MI:SS AM'")

BTW, to then open a record set...

We use the CreateDynaset() in OraDatabase.

For example, to get a read-only record set
Dim RS as OraDynaset
  set RS = DB.CreateDynaset(SQL$, ORADYN_READONLY)
