You still haven't told us why; are you running an 8.0.6 server
on that box? I reckon you could install a minimal more recent
oracle client, *not* put it on your global path, but simply stick
it at the beginning of your python script path *before* importing
cx_oracle.

Oracle instant client weights about 30Mb on windows:

(warning: this probably requires an OTN registration)

HTH,

Bernard.
