I'm sorry I only noted your message now... Did you solve your problem?I think this won´t work. LuaSQL OCI8 driver is another library.
Sorry for being dumb, but I am trying to make a basic script to connect to
an oracle database on windows. I have tried installing Oracle Instant
Client and moved the dll under the luasql folder (next to the other
database dll's , but even when I tried renaming oci.dll as oci8.dll -- no
It is not distributed with Oracle products. In fact, the driver would
bind the client library (OCI8) to Lua language. It is a way to allow
access to a C library through Lua.I am not sure what drivers are distributed with Lua For Windows.
My platform: win7 (64 bit)
with Lua5.1(32 bit installed)
I have previously installed Lua for Windows and luarocks but don't know if
that is messing anything up.
Can you compile/build the source?
