I have installed the 64-bit version of the Oracle ODBC driver (instantclient-odbc-windows.x64-188.8.131.52.0 from http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/topics/winx64soft-089540.html) on my 64 bit Windows 7 system. The driver shows up in the ODBC administration dialog. However, when I try to define an ODBC source I obtain the error message (translated from German):
The setup routines for the Oracle ODBC client in instantclient64_12_1 could not be loaded. System error code 126: The denoted module was not found. (C:\Program Files\Oracle\instantclient64_12_1\SQLORAS32.DLL).
After comfirming the dialog box a second message appears with basically the same message. A first check yields that the DLL does reside in the path given in the error message. Also the examination of the registry shows that both DLL paths to SQLORAS32.DLL and SQLORA32.DLL have been set correctly.
The installation manual requires the PATH variable to be set the same directory. This was also checked by me.
Is there any way to fix this?
