It's been a while since I've installed Oracle. I wanted to install 11gR2 on my windows 7 ultimate system. I tried the 32 bit, but the check failed. So installed the 64 bit server, personal.
That seemed to go ok.
I then installed the client in a client subdirectory of the oracle directory. Probably not a good move. So I thought I would uninstall, but there was no uninstall in the oracle/client directory. So, going further down the rabbit hole I reinstalled the instant client in the default directory
Then i installed TOAD10 and it didn't find any info on oracle home. It found both clients but can't start the oci.dll in either.
I also noticed there Didn't seem to be a registry home directory for Oracle in the wow area.
I'm obviously missing quite a bit. Can anyone guide me on what to do?
