I have read all the other posts on connecting to Oracle in InstallShield. Also, I have created the Oracle Instant Client and ODBC prerequisite according to the Help topic, "Downloading the Oracle Basic Instant Client and the Oracle ODBC Instant Client and Creating an .msi Package and InstallShield Prerequisite for Both ".

After the prerequisite is installed and the Oracle connection dialog displays, the servers are not enumerated. When I try to connect, it says it can't find the driver and "...may need to set the location of ORACLE_HOME." I have tried that, but have not been able to point it to the right place.

Has anyone had success with connecting to Oracle in InstallShield lately?
