First thing first. I am complete noob when it comes to Setting up environment for working with Pro*C. I want to use Pro* C with Oracle database to develop applications. I will not be able to understand obscure references and jargon related to Pro*C. If possible please give distinct steps I need to follow. Searching on Google couldn't produce any meaningful result.


Thanks in advance. I will be very grateful.

First refer to Pro*C/C++ Programmer's Guide
Then there is nothing special to do.
Just be sure that ORACLE_HOME is set and PATH contains %ORACLE_HOME%\lib library.
Also add %OracleHome%\precomp\public in your include path.
Then the Pro*C call is something like (replace %% by your program name and directory, and change and add parameters for your need):
%OracleHome%\bin\proc parse=full mode=ansi iname=%%.pc oname=%%.c lname=%%.lst ltype=short include=%OracleHome%\precomp\public...

Thanks Michel. I gone through the documentation. It's very useful but unless I set up my machine to compile ProC code , it will not be that much useful.

Can you please name some executable that I need to install to make the environment ready for ProC. Also what will be command to compile a ProC program in Windows.I know I can use make -f sample.mks program_name in Linux but I dont know what it's in Windows.

Run OUI (Oracle Universal Installer) from Oracle Client download and choose "Developer" install and take care that precompilers are checked.

Now how you compile a C program in Windows depends on your programming tool. It is independent to Oracle.
Oracle proc converts Pro*C program (.pc) to C one (.c).

There is no C compiler pre-installs on Windows and no make either (but you can find both on the web).
