If you downloaded the driver from oracle.com, ther will be a read me or installation guide that comes with it.

I suggest the Oralce Instant Client with ODBC:

Basic first then the ODBC add on

ok iv download from the links but cant find any installation guide,

I did look at installing from link


but that may no sense either.

It is a little obscure but on the instant Client download link above, scroll all the way to the bottom: Installation Steps

With the Instant Client there really isn't an install.  Just unzip, create the network/admin/tnsnames.ora file and you are done.

With the ODBC add-on, just copy the contents in that zip to the same folder as the instant client.

With the ODAC, there should be a read me of some type.  It has been a while since I installed this but with the XCOPY version I remember something like an install.bat.
