If you want to program with Oracle components, you will need one of the following versions of Microsoft Visual Studio:
- Visual C++ 2010 SP1
- Visual C++ 2012
- Visual C++ 2013 Update 2
- Oracle Call Interface
Oops. The Universal Installer would not run on my machine. It complained that the Java run-time was not found at "bin\jawaw.exe". I was directed to go to http://www.javasoft.com to install the JRE version 1.4 or higher. Umm I thought the installer was supposed to install Oracle's own version of the JRE.
