Connecting to Oracle on 64bit OS

  Asked By: Dennis    Date: Apr 27    Category: MOSS    Views: 1888

We have a 64-bit implementation of MOSS 2007. I recently installed the SharePoint SDK to use the Application Definition Designer to connect to Oracle. I enter the connection string and then I get this:

Attempt to load Oracle client libraries threw BadImageFormatException. The problem will occur when running in 64 bit mode with the 32 bit Oracle client components installed.

I have verified that the server contains the 64 bit version of the Oracle client installed both with the instantclient and with system.data.oracleclient.dll. The only thing I can think of is that the tool was compiled as a 32bit application. Is there a 64bit version available? Is there something else that I'm missing?

I resolved this by installing the SDK on my local PC and then creating the ADF file there. I still have lots of issues connecting  to Oracle, but that's the subject of another post.
