Dear all,

I installed the Oracle Client on a new machine with Windows XP.

SQLPLUS and TNSPING are working fine; however, there there is a problem with EXP:

I'm getting the error ORA-12154: TNS:could not resolve the connect identifier specified

It use it like this:
exp user/pw_at_db full=Y direct=y file=c:\db.dmp

The tnsnames.ora is okay (otherwise, sqlplus and tnsping would fail) The help doesn't really help me.

Anyone has an idea about what could be the problem?

Thank you in advance!
