Install Oracle Client 12c on Windows 10 – INS-20802: Oracle Net Configuration Assistant failed

Hello all!
Some days ago a client reach me because he was facing this error when installing Oracle Client 12.1.0.2.0 on Windows 10:

oracle12Error

Researching on topic found this.

Seems Oracle client 12.1.0.2 requires MSVC 2010 redistributable to proceed Oracle Net Configuration step.
After this requested client to install “Microsoft Visual C++ 2010 Redistributable Package” on server. And issue solved! 🙂

The download of Package can be performed from here: https://www.microsoft.com/en-gb/download/details.aspx?id=5555

Hope it helps you!
See you next week!

    • Hi Meghna,
      That’s why we are only installing client here, not a database software. To create a database use the proper installation files.
