    Good day, everyone!

    I would like to seek some help regarding with the recommended version of Oracle client. Currently, I have an x64 Application on Windows 7 x64 Enterprise. I would like to know if what will be the recommended oracle client for Windows 7 x64 Enterprise. I tried installing Oracle 11g and it seems that it is now compatible with the environment. Upon installing, error is showing: Oracle Database 11g is not certified on the current operating system.

    Thanks for the future help! :)

    Re: Recommended Version of Oracle client for a x64 Application on Window 7 x64 Enterp

    "11g" IS certified for Microsoft window 7 64-bit if you installed version 11.2.0.1 or greater. If you installed 11.1.0.6 or 11.1.0.7 you will see this error. "11g" is a MARKETING term that is completely worthless to the Oracle database community. You need to report the version you installed, not some useless marketing blather.

    Would further note that there is a distinct difference between installing the Oracle 11g Runtime Client rather than the Oracle 11g Database.

    Thanks, David.

    The version I installed is 11g Release 1 (11.1) for Microsoft Windows (32-Bit). Will check that out.
    Thanks for the help! :)

    Hi DTSIGuy,
    Yes..
    I installed Oracle® Database Client before that is resulted to error. Will now check 11.2.0.1 or >
    I just need the client only.

    My reply was the result of a search on support.oracle.com for the Oracle client software compatibility.
