OBIEE Cant Import Metadata Administration Client Tool

OBIEE Cant Import Metadata (Administration Client Tool)

Im on Windows 7 64 Bit . OBIEE instance is on a Linux 64 Bit Platform

1. Make Sure there is a  new Oracle Home installed on the Windows Machine.

I just installed the latest Oracle Home 11.2

I also created a Windows System Environment Variable too.


With path to Bin directory in the Oracle Home.

I think this one actually worked though.. Not sure but maybe try this first...
The other thing that worked for me was i installed the Oracle Client Tools (32 BIT) as Windows Server 2003 in compatability Mode. Then used the Admin Tool Program  in the Program Files - Oracle Client tools installation directory to launch the Administration tool.  This has resolved my issue.

I Used the 32bit Windows ODBC Client aswell to configure online RPD Access.
