I guess you do not have the same Oracle client installation.  Make
sure you set the sql-oracle-program option approriately.  It must
point to an executable that runs SQL*Plus in the *same* window -- if
that executable opens another window, you're out.  Unfortunately the
names of the executables vary with client versions.

This also on the wiki:

So basically, this is a Windows+Oracle problem, not Emacs.  :)
