Oracle home not found"


Trying to create new connection or editing new connections, the “Connect using” field is blanked out and can not be populated. This is BMF trial using Oracle11G. Using TNS.

The connection that used to work before, now it does not. Thanks.


Are you using the Oracle instant client or the full client? If using the instant client make sure to put the path to the instant client bin directory in the PATH environment variable.


Using full client. I installed 32 & 64 clients. Thanks much


Should of asked this before, what version and bit of BMF are you using?


7.1 64bit build 496 trial


open registry then navigate to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\oracle, verify sub key of your home is exist (KEY_xx) and if exist navigate into this sub key and check ORACLE_HOME and ORACLE_HOME_NAME are both exist.
