Oracle OLEDB does not register in Citrix

Posted on 2014-08-12

A software vendor that we are using provided us with a Citrix installer in order to place the common components into the Global Assembly Cache so that their program can find them when running via the Citrix server memory space.  Last time we looked at this we were receiving an  Oracle provider error in the logs. Even after registering the server,

The Oracle 11 installer apparently has a bug which doesn't register it.

    Is there a question in there somewhere?

    We cannot connect to a database. If the Oracle OLEDB was configured, we could fetch data.

    Attached is the vendor's solution, which did not work as is evidenced by the Citrix team's response with screenshots.

    Please review the attachment.

    Sorry! <blush>

    I reviewed the attachment before I posted.

    I'm still unsure what it trying to tell me.

    I see that eventually the Oracle drivers were installed and available.

    I didn't see anywhere where some app tried to connect but failed.  I see where you performed a work-around from some bug and the driver installed.

    I guess the Citrix guys have to select the driver and continue.  Thanks for validating that the drivers installed.
