    ODBC driver could not be loaded due to system error code 998

    399606
      All I want to do i use Oracle ODBC driver to link an Oracle database to a SQL Server database.
      I installed Oracle9i Client (9.2.0.1.0) from a CD and the latest ODBC driver (9.2.0.4.0) from OTN but it didn't appear in the ODBC Data Source Administrator Tool.
      I created a separate registry entry for this driver with information about its path, setup, version, etc.

      APILevel="1"
      ConnectFunctions="YYY"
      CPTimeout="60"
      Driver="E:\oracle\ora92\BIN\SQORA32.DLL"
      DriverODBCVer="03.52"
      FileUsage="0"
      Setup="E:\oracle\ora92\BIN\SQORAS32.DLL"
      SQLLevel="1"

      This way I managed to include it in the list of all drivers in the ODBC Data Source Administrator Tool.

      But when I try to create a System DSN I get the following errors:

      - the setup routines for the Oracle in OraHome92 ODBC driver could not be loaded due to system error code 998
      - could not load the setup or translator library

      What is the problem?
