Hello guru

URGENT !!!

I have the problem : Cannot load OCI DLL: C:\oracle\product\10.2.0\db_2\BIN\oci.dll"

OS Windows Vista 64 bits sp2
Oracle 10g 10.0.2 - 64 bits Server

Toad for Oracle version 10.5.0.41 installed on the Database Server

I didn’t install the oracle client yet .

My Question is , based on my configuration above , why I am still getting the error msg ?

Hello Frank_Assis

I think the problem is, that “Toad requires a 32 bit Oracle client” [http://toadfororacle.com/thread.jspa?messageID=89389].

I’ve got the same Problem.

My configurations:

System:
Microsoft Windows Server 2003 R2
Stnadard x64 Edition
Service Pack 2

Toad:
Toad for Oracle Professinal
Version 10.5.1.3

Oracle:
[SELECT * FROM V$VERSION;]
Oracle Database 10g Release 10.2.0.3.0 - 64bit Production
PL/SQL Release 10.2.0.3.0 - Production
CORE 10.2.0.3.0 Production
TNS for 64-bit Windows: Version 10.2.0.3.0 - Production
NLSRTL Version 10.2.0.3.0 - Production

Question @expert.
There doesn’t exist a Toad Version for Oracle 64bit Client?

Thanks for help.

Toad is a 32 bit app so that means we can only talk to 32 bit DLLs. You
need to install a 32 bit client.

There is no 64 bit Toad available at this time.

As had been said numerous times and is documented on asktoad.com – toad is
a 32-bit app and requires a 32-bit client install. Toad can talk to a 64-bit
database server just fine, but the client on Windows with Toad must be 32-bit.

Thanks for your help.
Now i know that Toad only works with a 32bit-Oracle-Client. But it astonishes me when does an Toad works with a 64bit Oracle-client. Is there planned a product in future?
I mean - how we can see in the forum - several people would like a toad working with 64bit Oracle client…

If you search the yahoo discussion threads you will see the answer several times
…. When Delphi offers a 64-bit compiler.

There is also a discussion on this at the Toad Idea Pond (
