Connecting to Oracle

 [1/2] from: kvince::comcast::net at: 10-Apr-2006 18:54

I'm using Command/View to connect to various databases. ODBC connections work fine, but Oracle is a problem. Using db-connect: open oracle://user:pass-database returns Oracle error: Unable to locate client library. I have Oracle client on this workstation (along with third party Oracle software). Can anyone tell me what Rebol is looking for and where it's looking for it?

Hi Vince depending on your version it looks for something like oraclient8.dll, ora73.dll or else. To see what it is really looking for, you can load the binary (rebxxxx.exe) in an editor and search for all occurences of "ora". The newer oracle versions should have some wrapper .dlls for oraxx.dll. Put ora73.dll in the same directory where your oracle/bin path is pointing. Alternatively you can try to make a copy of your oraclientx.dll and name it according to one of the names you found in your rebolxxx.exe. AR wrote:
