I was just given a new Laptop with Windows 7. My old laptop used Orcale client 9i, and I also had the Oracle datareader 11g installed.
I am not sure what version of Oracle client I should install on the new laptop. I tried installing 9 again and it was not supported.
I went to the site and there seems to be many choices and I want to pick the correct one.
What is the comaptible version to install on Windows 7 and will this new version contain the client and the data reader I need for my VS.net web apps? Thanks

Whether to use 32-bit or 64-bit depends on your applications,
but use Oracle ODP.NET 11g (ODAC) and you can contact Oracle 11g, 10g, and 9i databases
During the ODP.NET installation you will be prompted to select CLIENT INSTALL vs. DATABASE INSTALL,
so of course use CLIENT INSTALL
