Trying to CONNECT from ArcInfo Workstation 9.x on Windows to Oracle 9i produces the error message:
"The dynamic link library orasql8.dll could not be found in the specified path"
The CONNECT command is using the $ARCHOME/bin/dbi_oracle executable. By default this executable is programmed to use Oracle 8i libraries.
Change the ORACLE.DBS file to reference a newer executable that is programmed to use Oracle 9i libraries.
