Oci.DLL 8.1.7.0 but DBExplor.exe: Oracle 7.3.2.0.0

Hello,

We've newly installed a computer with Oracle 8i
(one version Oci.DLL 8.1.7.0 the second 8.0.6.0)
and Delphi 5.0 Enterprise.
DBExplorer shows in an connected Alias Oracle 7.3.2.0.0!
Is it a bug, or whatever.

Best regards
Dietmar

Explorer is stuck in a timewarp.  But you might say its a bug.

Sorry but I've found it in SQLMonitor:

The version number is a result of
  select 'Oracle ' || VERSION_TEXT from SM$VERSION

Oracle's SQL-Plus gives the same response:
   "Oracle 7.3.2.0.0"

Perhaps SM$VERSION is not more the actual variable for that

It never was.  This is a view exclusively for Server Manager (hence
SM).  The right view for the version is product_component_version.  So
.. a bug.
