What version of windows 7 are you running, 32bit / 64bit.
I remember having a problem, when I installed 64bit Win7.
I installed the Oracle Client to match IE. MS windows x64.
And Toad would not see the the client etc.
I eventually removed the 64bit client, and install the 32 bit client.
TOAD then was working OK. At least it was able to connect to databases.

clear and published plans on Windows 7 supp\ort being “official”. And other
than maybe the 11g R2 which just came out (and I am not 100% sure about
this), I don’t think that Oracle has added support yet for 11g R2 or
anything before. There is a doc on metalink about all this.

I’m using Windows 7. I have installed the Oracle client 10 without issues,
but for other reasons (9 and 10 databases). So download that one and install
it. You should have no issues with using a 10 client against a 9 database.
