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    I would really recommend upgrading to a newer version of the datbase and the programming language/framework.

    Actually We are doing this project according to Calcutta University Syllabus. The exam conducted by a university and we are taking exam accordingly to their syllabus. So We can not upgrade non other than Oracle8i/Oracle10g and Vb 6.0 enterprise edition. From many days I am facing the problem. The error message displayed in that phase where I am trying to test connection... In adodb or dc it has two phases. Phase one is interactive mainly work related to menu base mostly in control panel and In the end there is a message called " test connection is succeed...Now the funny things is sometimes " test connection is succeed" but in later stage when I create table in oracle and fill data. Later when I develop project on base of oracle table. I write the code in VB. I draw pop up and assign values in properties. when vb browse values from oracle table. Sometimes after 2/3 values showing in table its hangs up..sometimes on the time of browsing values its an error message called " test connection not succeed or test connection failure these type of error message.. Sir I will be highly oblige if you give me highlight about main problem's solution. Even I try to uninstall the software completely from PC and then newly install them. But sometimes its give me success. The maximum time not. But after one year why it shows a connection problem. I don't know.
