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

Currently Being Moderated

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

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

my "path" variable is as below:
C:\Documents and Settings\Administrator.SERVER2003>set path

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!!!
