Not able to connect with Oracle 11 from VC++ in VS 2008 using Oracle ODBC driver in W
I was using Windows XP 32 bit o/s and I had a 32 bit application that was connecting with Oracle 11g database using Oracle ODBC driver.
Recently my company upgraded my machine to Window7, 64 bit SP1 o/s. I tried the following cases to get my app establish a odbc connection with the database but I was without luck so thought of check with the experts like.
Used my 32 bit application with 64 bit oracle driver
The specified DSN contains an architecture mismatch between the drive
Convert 32 bit to 64 bit application with 64 bit oracle driver
Specified driver could not be loaded due to system error 126: The specified module could not be found. (Microsoft ODBC for Oracle, C:\WINDOWS\system32\msorcl32.dll).
Used my 32 bit application with 32 bit oracle driver
Data source name not found and no default driver specified
I dont think I am the only guy to get this issue. My Google searches were not successful to get the solution to keep me going. I would appreciate any help to cross this hurdle.
