I am using an outdated version of Toad (Data Analysis 3.1) and trying to configure it for the Oracle Client not the direct connection. As you can see from the screenshot the Oracle Client is grayed out.

Any ideas on how to get this piece enabled/not grayed so that I can input the information into the Oracle Client tab that I need?

ThankS!

What version of the Oracle Client did you install?

Since it is an old version of Toad, it might not be compatible with the client version you've installed.  If you have an older client around you might try installing that but then you may not be able to connect to a newer version of the database.

So we're using a 64 bit version of Oracle because of Windows 7 X64 and Crystal Reports. Toad needs 32 bit Oracle? Can you install both?
