    Cannot load OCI DLL: C:\oracle\product\10.2.0\db_1\bin\oci.dll

    591445
      Hello,


      my environment is:
      MS Windows 2003 R2 SP2 Enterprise x64 Edition
      Oracle Database 10g Release 10.2.0.1.0 - 64bit Production

      and I want to use:
      TOAD for Oracle Freeware - version 8.5.0.50 g (from Quest Software)

      my "path" variable is as below:
      C:\Documents and Settings\Administrator.SERVER2003>set path
      Path=C:\oracle\product\10.2.0\db_1\bin;C:\WINDOWS\system32;C:\WINDOWS;C:\WINDOWS\System32\Wbem
      PATHEXT=.COM;.EXE;.BAT;.CMD;.VBS;.VBE;.JS;.JSE;.WSF;.WSH

      At location "C:\oracle\product\10.2.0\db_1\bin\" I can see "oci.dll"

      BUT... when I try to connect to my database... from TOAD... I get the message below.

      Cannot load OCI DLL: C:\oracle\product\10.2.0\db_1\bin\oci.dll


      Using "netca" or "sqlplus" I can connect to the database with success.


      Help welcome!!!
