I have downloaded a tool to query one of our corporate Oracle DB. software is as follows:
A pre req for the software is to install the oracle database client. I went to google and given I am working on a windows 7 X-86 based system. I downloaded the first download copy of "the client" from the below..
Instant Client Package - Basic: All files required to run OCI, OCCI, and JDBC-OCI applications
(72,416,242 bytes) (cksum - 1751087003)"
It is just a zip file full of random files, no setup.exe or anything like that to "intall" it on my machine.
so my question is:
1) is this the right oracle client for windows 7?
2) what am I supposed to do once unzipped the files to my pc to get it installed?
