Oracle ODBC with Instant Client

Sometimes we don’t want to have full client installed just for an ODBC connection to Oracle Database, so I had a try with Oracle Instant Client. Download & install required packages Instant Client Package – Basic Instant Client Package – ODBC You can download either Instant Client for Microsoft Windows (32-bit) or Instant Client for Microsoft Windows (64-bit) based on your preference. After we have the packages, unzip them into a directory, all the files should be in same directory.
