Hi Bren,

Thank you for answering.

I tried only with host:port in the "Service Name", but now I get the error
message that "The specified credentials are not valid or the provider is
unable to establish a connection."

I double checked the credentials and I am sure they are right. Also the
connection seems to work initially when I use db at host:port

Do you have any other suggestions? Are there any DLLs I need to check for

I am testing on a virtual PC where there is only oracle and Topobase2011
(with Map3D 2011). So there isn't much other software that should

I should also note that I am on WinXP Pro with the current service pack.
