Oracle 11gR2 64-bit isn't the only supported Oracle client for Windows 7. 32 bit 10205 and 32 bit 11.2 are supported as well.
However, 32 bit OO4O is not supported on x64 in general. That's not to say that it doesn't work though ~ it's just not supported.
Your options would be:
1) install 10205 or 11202 32 bit client with oo4o, and use it even though it's not supported.
2) rewrite the app to use ADO and Oracle's OLEDB provider instead if you need to stick with vb
3) the recommended oo4o migration path in general is ODP.NET
Probably not what you wanted to hear, but hope it helps,
Greg, thank you very much. I installed the 11gR2 32-bit client and it worked without issue. Phew!
So is Oracle giving up on oo4o in favor of the others you mentioned? I wonder why they have support for it in the 32-bit but not the 64-bit version of 11gR2....
So many mysteries.
"the recommended oo4o migration path in general is ODP.NET"
Are there any examples for non-managed C++ developers that support recommended migration path?

Is OO4O library planned for x64 platform in the future?
