Problem accessing Oracle 12c instance with Toad


#1

Hello:

I just installed Oracle 12c on a Windows 7 laptop. I am able to log into the instance using SQL Plus. I have also installed ODAC 64-bit

However, when using Toad v10.1.1.8, the TNS tab shows an empty database dropdown box even though the instance exists in the TNSNames.ora file.

When I choose the Direct Tab, and enter the values as they exist in TNSNames, I get a “Cannot load OCI DLL: oci.dll”

What am I Doing wrong?

V11.6 was the first version that supported a 64 bit client. You’ll need to upgrade Toad or install a 32 bit Oracle client.
