  • The client database software must be of the same version as the server database software.

  • Do not use Oracle 'light client' as it does not include some of the required .dll files.

  • Beginning with Windows 10 and Oracle, Microsoft and Oracle will enforce the Internet Host Table Specification RFC 952 which mandates that component hostname labels can contain only alphanumeric characters. Host names using underscores (‘_’) are not allowed. Refer to Oracle Support Articles 1603775.1 and 1957895.1 and Microsoft KB 101785.
