Connecting to oracle 11.2 from UFT 12

Connecting to oracle 11.2 from UFT 12



I am trying to connect to oracle 11.2 from UFT12 using instantclient. The instanclient driver works sometimes and other time it gives me this error - A dynamic link library (DLL) initialization routine failed. (Oracle in instantclient_11_2, C:\instantclient\SQORA32.dll).


I have made the necessary settings in the env variables - Path and TNS_Admin.


I also tried using the microsoft odbc for oracle which is present by default in - c:\Windows\SysWOW64\odbcad32.exe.

This gave me a run error which mentioned only - [Microsoft][ODBC driver for Oracle][Oracle]  Line (7): "cnDatabase.Open".


I am not sure what this error means.


Any help is deeply appreciated.

Hello There,


Has anyone found the solution for his problem?

I am facing this too.


However same code successfully gets execute through VBA but fails in UFT.


I reinstalled oracle driver many times but still it runs fine sometimes but fails after some executions.
