The Specified Module Could Not Be Found Solution Description -------------------- You need to give the Authenticated User privilege to the Oracle Home by following these steps:
i. Log on to Windows as a user with Administrator privileges.
ii. Launch Windows Explorer from the Start Menu and and navigate to the ORACLE_HOME directory.
iii. Right-click on the ORACLE_HOME folder and choose the "Properties" option from the drop down list. A "Properties" window should appear.
iv. Click on the "Security" tab on the "Properties" window.
v. Click on "Authenticated Users" item in the "Name" list (on Windows XP the "Name" list is called "Group or user names").
vi. Uncheck the "Read and Execute" box in the "Permissions" list (on Windows XP the "Permissions" list is called "Permissions for Authenticated Users"). This box will be under the "Allow" column.
vii. Check the "Read and Execute" box. This is the box you just unchecked.
viii. Click the "Apply" button.
ix. Click the "OK" button.
x. You may need to reboot your computer after these changes have been made. Re-execute the application and it should now work.
Explanation ----------- If you install Oracle9i Release 2 (184.108.40.206) on a computer running Windows with an NTFS partition, the contents of ORACLE_HOME directory will not be visible to users who are authenticated on that machine. These permissions were not set properly when the software was installed. Applications that were working fine with previous versions of Oracle software will stop working when they upgrade to Oracle 9.2.
NOTE: The application will continue to work if the user has logged onto the machine as an Administrator. Any application that is using the Authenticated User privilege will not work. A notable example would be IIS which might service some of the requests based on the Authenticated User privileges. To demonstrate the problem in further detail, you can log on to the operating system as an authenticated machine user. You won’t be able browse the contents of the ORACLE_HOME directory demonstrating your inability to load any Oracle DLLs or make a connection.
