· Support for Multiple Homes

Oracle Objects for OLE can be installed in Multiple Oracle Homes, starting with release 10.1. However, being a COM component, only one instance can be active on the computer. This means that the current (latest) installation renders the previous one inactive.

In order to make multiple homes available, the use of a HOMEID is required. Also,some of the OO4O files include a version number.

Please see the following: OO4O Redistributable Files and Tuning and Customization re: Windows Registry subkey.
