OCI.dll was not found error


#1

Hi all,

While I was trying to run a ruby file, I got the following error message
box:
ruby.exe - unable to locate component
This application has failed to start because oci.dll was not found.
Re-installing the application may fix this problem.

I have installed oci8 correctly and have tried uninstalled and
re-installed ruby and oci8 many times, but it didn’t solve the problem.
I also found oci.dll file in my oracle directory C:\oracle\ora92\bin.
Where and what am I missing? Could someone help me out?

Thanks,
maung

Hi Maung,

I’m not a ruby expert
but this problem doesn’t look like a ruby error.
All I can suggest make sure the directory where oci.dll resides is in
the path.

Hope it helps
Yusuf
