udl test not possible to test Oracle OLEDB provider

I have some issue to connect to my Oracle database.
My environment is Windows Server 2008 R2, with Oracle server 11G.

To test my Oracle OLEDB provider, I setup a udl test as described follow:
1- Creation a file text document on server desktop : test.txt
2- File extension change to .udl : test.udl
3- launch of test.udl

When I launched the test.udl, The Data Link Properties dialog box is not opened. A windows explorer is opened.

Anybody knows why I am not able to launch the data link properties dialog box in my environment ?

Thank you for your help
