A quick search turned up this article:

Have you verified that ORACLE_SID is *unset* on the client?

Good luck,

We have a third party application that uses Progress to connect to an Oracle database. We are in the process of replacing the servers with ones running Windows 2008, Progress 9.1.E and Oracle 11G R2 client. The current system uses Windows 2003, Progress 9.1.D and Oracle 10G client.

We are encountering an Oracle 1012 error when attempting to connect to the database. SQL Plus connects without problems. Both Progress and the Oracle Client are 32 bit.

We and the vendor have tried everything we can think of without success. Looking for any help someone can provide.
