Hi,

Hope i've put this in the correct area.

We currently have a windows 2008 server running our virtulization administration application (VCenter server 4.0) which uses a 10g client 32bit ODBC driver to connect to our 10g database server. This is the emulated 32bit driver in sysWOW64 folder.

I need to upgrade VCenter, which needs to use the 64bit 10g ODBC driver. Have installed the 102010_win64_x64_client on a test server which gives me the correct 64 bit driver.

My question is can i install two clients onto the same windows 2008 server without causing operational issues while i run pre upgrade checks?

Thanks

As far as I can tell - yes, you can. Just make sure to put each of them into its own Oracle Home (i.e. directory).

Also, if you run Oracle Universal Installer (OUI), it should display exact versions of all Oracle products you installed so far.
