Sir, I have a problem I am doing job in computer science laboratory of a college. Since last 4/5 yrs I have to format all the PC to establish a data connection in between Oracle 8i and VB 6.0. During exam its work in all 18 PCs. But after 1/2 month later in all PCs there was a connection problem in between Oracle 8i and VB 6.0. Next year again I have to format all the PCs and newly load with oracle8i and VB 6.0. Is there any solution of the problem.Why its not working after 2/3 months later or is there any way to do this work without formatting of my PC. I have tried with installing MSDA compatible with Windows XP SP2 (because only Windows XP SP2 the connection is established not with Windows 7 or Windows 8 or Windows XP SP3 also. Please anyone help me.

Software/Hardware used:
OS - WINDOWS XP SP2, SOFTWARES - ORCLE 8i AND VISUAL BASIC 6.0

    Why are you using such old products?

    It's hard to try to help without more details about the exact errors that occur when the connection starts to fail.

    I would really recommend upgrading to a newer version of the datbase and the programming language/framework.
