Oracle Developer 6i and 9i database connection problems

I cannot connect to a 9i database patched to 9.2.0.6 (I can if the server is patched to 9.2.0.5) from a 6i Developer client on XP. Tnsping80 is OK but not SQL. I get kicked out of SQL and the error report references ora805.dll. When I install the 9i client I can connect with it but still cannot from the Developer client. I need both clients and the server at 9.2.0.6 for an application and the vendor has other customers where this combination works. What is wrong?

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Unless you’ve read some official Oracle document that said it should work, it sounds like they have finally broken the backward compatibility. Perhaps you should consider that you’ve gotten your money’s worth, at this point, and it’s time to upgrade? Seems odd that they’d break it on a minor revision, but it might have been unavoidable or considered unimportant, given the timespan.

But, you could always ask the folks at Oracle. Regular support of 6i ended a year ago, but “Error Correction Support” extends to the end of this month (Jan. ’05). If it’s supposed to work, that should be covered under Error Correction.

    Hi, Which patch set of Forms 6i you are running. patch set 13 onwards XP should not have such issues. If you are above patch set 13 and still you are getting those problems then possibility is Characterset of Oracle Database you are running. Soln. Create another database with non-default characterset it will work. Regards Avadhani.
