    Sounds like you're using one of the depreciated Microsoft provided Oracle drivers... so since those are typically 32 bit, my best guess without knowing more is that you need a 32 bit Oracle client instead of a 64 bit one. (A 32 bit client works fine on a 64 bit OS, and is required for 32 bit applications.)
