Hi  All

I am trying to get import cx_oracle work on my windows laptop

I installed cx_Oracle-5.1.2-10g.win32-py2.7 on my laptop which is 64 bit as
the 64 bit msi seem to be specific for AMD desktops

Anyways after installed I do find cx_oracle.pyd in the lib site packages

But when I try to pip install cx_oracle it gives an error saying it is
already established

When I issue python -c 'import cx_oracle' the error I get is
Import : EOL while scanning string literal
When I issue python -c "import cx_oracle" the error I get is
Import : No module named cx_oracle

My oracle version is

Please advice how I can get my oracle package to work so I can connected

If there is a better mailing list please let me know as well
