Should ODBC + Instant Client + ADODB work?

Hi, I have an old application in VB.NET that connects by ODBC using a filedsn that uses Microsoft ODBC for Oracle driver using ADODB.
I have a problem because numbers with decimals are being returned as strings because of the client regional settings.

I've tried with the Oracle ODBC driver (Oracle in OraClient11g_home in my machine) and it worked.
I want to be able to use this driver without having to install anything on the client machine, only by using the Oracle Instant Client dll.
But after many tests I couldn't make it work.

Is it possible? How can I make it work?

Thanks in advance.
