Currently there is no Oracle7 on DOS. You should be able to run Oracle6 and then Windows in Standard mode and you should be able to connect. Of course, this limits Windows. This used to work, but I don't know if this is still supported. SQL*Net for DOS has the same limitation.(ie run SQL*Net, then Win/S). There is SQL*Net for Windows which is a set of .dlls. You can use these with windows in enhanced mode to talk to a remote Oracle rdbms. Does that clear it up?(or make it worse?) Received on Wed Dec 22 1993 - 00:25:41 CET
