Johnny is probably right that the latest doc_group version has
better support for 64-bit systems than the OCI TAO 1.4a_p9
version you are currently using.  That version is over one year
old, and is in a release family that is rooted on the TAO 1.4.3
beta release that was released in December 2004.

However, I believe OCI's latest TAO 1.5a release will have
comparable 64-bit support to the doc_group version since it is
based on a quite recent (1.5.6) beta release, plus has been
extensively tested and stabilized across a wide variety of
platforms and development environments.  OCI TAO 1.5a can be
downloaded from:


If you are interested in staying with OCI's fully-supported
family of releases, please give TAO 1.5a a try.  If you find
any issues with it, please let us know.

Thank you.
