InstantClient: SQORAS32.DLL could not be found

I'm trying to configure the instant client driver to connect Oracle db from excel 32-bit, but when I try to configure the instant client from the odbc data source administrator, I receive the following error message:

"The setup routines for the Oracle in instantclient_12_2 ODBC Driver could not be loaded due to system error code 126: The specified module could not be found.


I've installed the instant client basic and odbc packages, run the odbc_install.exe from windows cmd, and updated the environment variables afterwards to include C:\Oracle\instantclient_12_2 and TSD_ADMIN.

PC I'm trying this with is Windows 8.1 pro with excel 2016 32-bit.

I've also made sure that both microsoft KB3147071 and Visual C++ 2010 packages are installed, as I found some notes referring to them, but still the same error message persists.

Could you please help me with this issue?

Best Regards
