We installed the 220.127.116.11.0 client runtime on Windows 7 32 bit (which installs "Oracle Provider for OLE DB 18.104.22.168.0" by default) and were still receiving "Provider cannot be found" errors. Simply re-installing the exact same product "Oracle Provider for OLE DB 22.214.171.124.0" from the 126.96.36.199.0 ODAC installation corrected it. Maybe an issue with the Oracle client installation? Just thought I'd post and possibly save someone a day of frustration.
"it is a known bug."
I could not find the bug ID / do you know it / how to find it?
I am looking for an official Oracle statement saying that their installer is not registering the Oledb provider properly.
Here is what you are looking for.
NOTE> Installing the 188.8.131.52 Oracle Provider for OLE DB from the Client Install Media Does Not Properly Register the Provider [ID 1380742.1] Bug:13417266 WHILE UPGRADING TO 184.108.40.206, INSTALLER FAILS TO REGISTER ORAOLEDB DLL

can you give us any sugestion?
Thanks, just ran into this issue too. The workaround of the bug is incomplete in My Oracle Support. In order to register the driver correct you need to run the regsvr32 comand from an elevated command prompt otherwhise you will get this: http://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/itprovistasecurity/thread/71037d62-d842-44a3-86df-6ed74df6fc39
