32-bit and 64-bit JDK for ODI 11g installation on W2K8 64-bit OS


This post is about to quickly refer to one of the most common trick you must know when you install ODI 11g on Windows Server 2008 64 bit OS.


64-bit JDK is just fine but once you start ODI 11g Studio from the same machine you will get “Oracle ODI 11g Unable to launch the Java Virtual Machine Located at path …”:







This is because ODI 11g Studio client tool works only with 32-bit JDK. The workaround is to edit $ODI_HOME\oracledi\client\odi\bin\odi.conf and point SetJavaHome to the 32-bit path.

    Hi Piyush,

    Yes, there is no problem from client side with 32 bit OS and 32 bit JDK.
    The ODI 11g Studio client works with 32 bit JDK.

      Hi Nil,
