ODBC driver could not loaded due system error code 14001

My computer OS is the Windows7 bits-64.
I would like to use the Oracle Instant Client 11g in my computer. I have downloaded "instantclient-basic-windows.x64-11.2.0.3.0" and "instantclient-odbc-windows.x64-11.2.0.3.0" and extract to the same folder.
I run the "odbc_install" to install it. I have set the "PATH" environment variable.

After that, when I create the ODBC system DNS, the error message is poped up.
"The Setup rountines for the Oracle in instantclient_11_2 ODBC driver could not be loaded due to system error code 14001: The application has failed to start because its side-by-side configuration is incorrect. Please see the application event log or use the command-line sxstrace.exe tool for more detail.(..\SQORAS32.DLL)."

I have checked the event log that shows the following message:
"Activation context generation failed for "C:\Program Files\Oracle Client\SQORAS32.DLL". Dependent Assembly Microsoft.VC80.MFC,processorArchitecture="amd64",publicKeyToken="1fc8b3b9a1e18e3b",type="win32",version="8.0.50727.762" could not be found. Please use sxstrace.exe for detailed diagnosis."

Some ppl said that install the "Microsoft Visual C++ 2005 Redistributable Package (x86)" could solve this error. However, I have installed from 2005 to 2010 both x64 and x86, the problem is still not fixed.

How can I solve this problem?

Thanks
