    Dual Oracle Thick Client Install: Windows 7

    941843
      Is it possible to install both the 32-bit Oracle Database thick client and the 64-bit Oracle Database thick client (with Oracle Data Access Components) on the same Windows 7 computer, without the 2 conflicting?

      Does this require changing default environment variables, registry settings, and/or install directories?

      For example, with both Oracle clients installed, will Windows 7 be confused if MS Office Excel (32-bit) attempts to use Oracle Provider for OLEDB: will it attempt to use the 64-bit provider and fail, instead of using the 32-bit Oracle Provider for OLEDB.
