Getinfo procedure error

I have two different versions of Oracle, 8.0.5 and 10.1.0.2, on Win2000 SP4. I have to upgrade my database to 10g. But under normal working conditions I get a Perl.exe.OCIDLL getinfo procedure error. How to resolve this error?

Do you mean you want to upgrade your 8.0.5 database to 10g? If so, then direct upgrade is not supported from your base version. You first need to upgrade from 8.0.5 to 8.1.7, then to 10g. You can use DBCA.

If your database is small then export/import may be more appropriate as you can create all the tablespaces to be locally managed with assm features enabled. You should be able to export from 8i client and import using 10g client onto your 10g database.
