Oracle Instaclient finally on OS X

Posted on Fri, 01 Feb 2013 in Technology


If you use OS X to develop anything that connects to Oracle, then today is a good day!

The Oracle 64 bit Instaclient is finally available in a non crashing version on OS X!

It only took 2 major OS X releases, and one major Oracle release1 for Oracle to build a working 64 bit Instaclient, but hey this computer stuff is hard...

  1. Oracle 10.x 64 bit Instaclient never worked on either Lion or Mountain Lion.
