Hi

Can anybody tell me how to connect developer 6 with Oracle Personal Edition 8.0.4
I have to install this on win 98 platform. I have tried to install both on a machine but developer is unable to connect to oracle giving TNS error. I have tried to replace tnsnames.ora and sqlnet.ora files from oracle to respective directories of developer..But was unable to connect..Please tell me if oracle and developer is to be installed in same directory of different.I have tried both way but unsuccessful..Also tell me if Oracle is to be installed first or developer
If possible tell me the right procedure of installation with connectivity of developer 6 with oracle 8 personal.I have installed Oracle 8i with developer 6 on win2000 They are working fine.
Please suggest me if I want that my project in developer should work at my client with minimum installation , should I install only developer with deployment option.After that selecting client option and Oracle with minimum option.Or there is some other suggestion.
Please help me
Thanks in advance
Taran

Hi there,

First of all u should remove all oracle products from ur computer, I
mean Oracle 8 and if u have installed Dev 2000, also remove it....u
will have to manually remove the program icons,their directories and
then you should go into registry i.e., regedit at the command prompt
and then remoce oracle from the nodes which come under software nodes
in two main nodes...I don't remember their names so u will have to
search for them in registry, one is probably local_machine (any way u
can find them...its pretty easy)
After this change the system date of ur computer to year 1999 and
then first of all install Dev 2000 (release 6) in the default
directory(orawin95)...this will be installed easily..without any
complications. ok after this start installing Oracle 8 in the same
directory...u will be prompted with several messages that the current
version of Oracle is old so would u like to continue...all u have to
do is to click the Yes button...amother prompt will be displayed
asking u to make changes to the AUTOEXEC.BAT...u should also click
Yes... ok after installing Oracle 8 to about 30-40% (status bar), an
error will be diaplayed in a modal window and ur installation will be
halted...go onto the system tray, there will be a window with a Dos
icon...somply right click on the window and select the close window
option...u will be asked do u want to continue...u should select yes
and then the installation will proceed till end and the error window
will still be on ur screen. Change the system date to present date and
then reboot the system, the error window will be gone. OK now once
again reinstall the Oracle 8 database just like the ususal way and
keep pressing all the Yes options and this time there wont be any
error displayed and ur installation will be complete.
You can check this afterwards by connecting to the database via
developer 2000 forms or reports etc.
I'm also using Oracle on WIN ME and beleive me this works!!!
do let me know if u still have any problems...

THIS INSTALLATION IS FOR DEVELOPER/2000(VER 6.0)
good luck!!

Hassan

Hi there,
Could you be more specific about the OS you are trying to install the products...maybe then I can help you...the procedure which I posted you earlier works on WIN 98 and ME and I have used it over dozen times and it works perfectly fine..... one mor thing that the you have to be really speccific while un-installing th eproducts and make sure you follow my procedure and take everything from the registry and the folders from the hard disk manually...

do let me know if you are successful...

good luck!!!!

Hassan
