I know I’ve seen this before, but I can’t find it now!
I have a colleague using Toad 9.5, with an Oracle 10.2.0.5 client to
connect to an Oracle 22.214.171.124 database.
When she connected, or attempts to, she gets an error popup that says
“OCI version 0.2083473045.2552.79945200.1306316 is not supported” but
the OCI version number in the error is total fiction.
I know she’s got 10.2.0.5 installed and on her path, and I’ve checked
http://toadfororacle.com/entry.jspa?externalID=4266&categoryID=391 to be
sure that Toad 9.5 can work with a 10g client (it can, it works with and
11.1 client too at that version). Plus I have used Toad 9.5 with the
same 10g install client to connect to databases with no problems.
I’m slightly puzzled here, it looks like Toad is getting some
information from the oci.dll (Guessing!) and trying to check the OCI
version and on finding this wrong OCI version is barfing.
However, I’ve no idea how Toad is getting this wrong version.
