Learn how to a build a cloud-first strategy
Hello, currently my company has a RHEL server running Oracle. We use Oracle XE Client 10g on Windows XP 32-bit to connect to the database in order to open up reports in Microsoft Excel. Were trying to design an upgrade plan to move to Windows 7 64-bit from Windows XP 32-bit and I wanted to know what can we use to achieve the same goal with the new OS. Ive looked on Oracles website and I cant find anything that will help me. I found one link to some software somewhere on Oracles site that I thought would help, but it didnt
Is there a software package out there that will help me accomplish my plan? It doesnt have to be an Oracle product. I just need it to create an ODBC connector to our Oracle database and be able to open up reports in Excel.
there is no 64 bit XE install for windows, you can install the 32 bit on win7 64 bit,
but, if you want a 64 bit client (XE isnt a client, its a database, which does include a client) you can download 64 bit clients from 0cjb123Author Commented:2012-09-13If I install the 32-bit client, what kind of error will I get and will it be repetitious? Also, as for the XE not being a client, I may have stated the actual name wrong but what were installing is a client based tool.
Ive attached a screenshot of the actual application during installation.

the 10g stuff: client, database, XE and other editions are all desupported
try upgrading to 11g instant client – 64 bit versions are available
you can get odbc supplement (and other options) to instant client here
