10g Oracle Client

I just installed the old 32 bit fat client for 10g on a 64 bit Windows laptop.
I call up the program, add a database to tree which shows up .  When i select the database, enter id and password everything just disappears.  I'm suspecting it has something to do with it being 32 bit on 64 bit machine, but I thought 32 bit software would run on  64 bit os.
Any ideas what happened?

There is more than 32 versus 64.  There is OS compatibility.

I assume you mean you were running the Network Configuration Assistance?

Is so, just edit the config files manually or copy them from a known good machine.

No, this is the old school Oracle Enterprise Manager Console fat client.

That is actually the 9i version.  It was just included on the 10g media.

Could be an OS incompatibility.  Could be a Java incompatibility.  Could really be anything.  I doubt you'll get it working unless you put up a lot of smoke and mirrors.

Why do you need it?

Bite the bullet.  Get used to dbConsole or Grid Control.

You have to check if it is compatible with your OS. possibly only Windows XP will run with this product. But I warn you that 64 bit Windows XP is very bad product. Many drivers are missing, many drivers are even not programmed for this version. So an old XP 32 bit possibly will help you.

I think you are right.  That old client probably just does not get very far on Windows 7.
Yep i was thinking java compatibility too and yes, I'd probably have to put in more junk than want to add.
