Installing an ODBC for 11g on Win 7 64 Bit Nearly Impossible

user9334236Nov 17 2015 — edited Nov 19 2015

Does anyone know how to do this in less than 30 steps, after uninstalling and reinstalling all the software and DB several times?

It basically just cost me a job, because lacking an ODBC, working from home, I can't run ADO, OLEDB, even link tables in Access so I can run ADO or DAO into THAT.

Seriously, I've pulled data from a mainframe OS2 into Excel with less trouble. If Oracle can't handle a simple ODBC like IBM, something is very wrong.

They are the most common, universal connection objects in the world. Why does this have to be like pulling teeth?
