    Steps to Sequence the Application:


    Before sequencing you may want a dummy user and system ODBC DNS in place so that the sequence can see other DSNs at the machine level.

    • Launch setup.exe.
    • Make sure InstantClient is selected and click Next.
    • Change the installation folder to Q:\Oracle11.001.
    • Ignore PATH error.
    • Select Finish.
    • Click Close.

    Most environments provide a TNSNAMES.ORA and SQLNET.ORA files that are customized for the customers environment. It is a good idea to keep these files outside of the sequence to make them easier to update especially if you are going to use multiple sequences with the Oracle client. Make a folder off of the root of C:\ and put the files in there and set the environment variable  based on the example below.


    • Create necessary ODBC DSNs.

    Known Issues/Limitations: Oracle is working on a client to be supported on Windows 7 and Server 2008 R2. A release is expected in July 2010.                                  

    Approximate Sequencing Time: 30 minutes

    Other (Optional fields)

    App-V friendly copy protection scheme?  N/A

    Additional Notes/Links: N/A

    Custom scripts to assist in the process: Can use pre launch script to update TNSNAMES.ORA and SQLNET.ORA if it is inside of the sequence.

  • Hello,

    I need your help.
    I virtualized Oracle 11g, but as I test, both IconeNetManager and Wallet Manager does not launch.

    Thanks for this recipe. Im trying to use this as middleware and link it to another application via DSC.

    Just a quick query. Is the environment variable TNS_admin=c:\OralceTNS declared in the OSD File like this;


    and does that folder and tns names have to be setup in the sequencing process?

    Im wanting to use Oracle11g client as middleware for a number of different applications.

  • Hi ,

    Can you please help me with the error message:

    "The setup routines for the Oracle in OraClient11g_home1 ODBC driver could not be loaded due to system error code 998:Invaild access to memory location"

    I get this error while trying to create ODBC after publishing the sequenced application.
