Error Running Toad 9.7

Hi,

I have installed Toad 9.7 on Windows Sever 2008 Enterprise x64 machine where I also have Oracle 11gR2 X64(Oracle Server & Client) editions installed.

I have both Oracle Server and Client installed  into diff folders under C:\app\Administrator.

Initially I have installed Toad 9.7 into c:\programfies x86 folder and I go the error "You don't have Oracle Client installed" at Toad startup

I have tried reinstalling Toad 9.7 to custom folder assuming that the folder programfies x86 is giving the problem but I am getting the same error though I have Oracle Client installed into diff. folder

I have attached error screenshots.

Thanks,
Rishi

Hi joeyfaz,

The blog is just saying not to install Oracle Server and Client in the same ORALCE_HOME but I am not sure whether they mean ORACLE_HOME or ORACLE_BASE.

I have reinstalled Oracle Client into a diff location other than ...\product\11.2.0 but under the same ORACLE_BASE c:\app\Administrator (C:\app\Administrator\OrcleClient11gR2) but still I am getting the same problem.

Also I am not allowed to search for Oracle clients from TOAD UI as mentioned in the blog.

When I click the ellipsis ... button, Toad is throwing the same error.

Thanks,
Rishi
