How To Install or Upgrade the Oracle Client Software

To install or upgrade the Oracle client software:

  1. If you do not have administrative rights on your computer, you must contact the OU Helpdesk to complete this procedure.
  2. Ensure that you are logged into ADMNET.
  3. For Most Users:

    1. Map your M drive to the network share appropriate for your operating system. If you are using 32-bit Windows 10, map your M drive to \\shares.oakland.edu\oraclient_user12c32; if you are using 64-bit Windows 10, map your M drive to \\shares.oakland.edu\oraclient_user12c64.

  4. For Duplicate PIDM (DupPIDM) Users:

    1. Map your M drive to the network share appropriate for your operating system. If you are using 64-bit Windows 10, map your M drive to \\shares.oakland.edu\oraclient_user12c64_update. No 32-bit version is available for these users currently.

  5. In the setup folder of your M drive, run user12c32_install_oraclient.bat (for 32-bit client) or user12c64_install_oraclient.bat (for 64-bit client).
  6. A command prompt window will open on your desktop; respond to any messages that you see. Any pre-existing Oracle client software you have will be removed, and the new version will be installed.
  7. If you are asked to reboot your computer, do so.
