Microsoft OLE DB Provider for ODBC Drivers (0x80004005)
Specified driver could not be loaded due to system error 998 (Oracle in OraHome92).

Does anybody know what this means?

 ODBC


 Standard Security:
"Driver={Microsoft Access Driver (*.mdb)};Dbq=C:\mydatabase.mdb;Uid=Admin;Pwd=;"


 Workgroup:
"Driver={Microsoft Access Driver (*.mdb)};Dbq=C:\mydatabase.mdb;SystemDB=C:\mydatabase.mdw;","admin", "" 


 Exclusive:
"Driver={Microsoft Access Driver (*.mdb)};Dbq=C:\mydatabase.mdb;Exclusive=1;Uid=admin;Pwd="


 OLE DB, OleDbConnection (.NET)


 Standard security:
"Provider=Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0;Data Source=\somepath\mydb.mdb;User Id=admin;Password=asdasd;"


 Workgroup (system database):
"Provider=Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0;Data Source=\somepath\mydb.mdb;Jet OLEDB:System Database=system.mdw;","admin", "" 


 With password:
"Provider=Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0;Data Source=\somepath\mydb.mdb;Jet OLEDB:Database Password=MyDbPassword;","admin", "" 


 Oracle
 ODBC


 New version:
"Driver={Microsoft ODBC for Oracle};Server=OracleServer.world;Uid=Username;Pwd=asdasd;"


 Old version:
"Driver={Microsoft ODBC Driver for Oracle};ConnectString=OracleServer.world;Uid=myUsername;Pwd=myPassword;"


 OLE DB, OleDbConnection (.NET)


 Standard security:
"Provider=msdaora;Data Source=MyOracleDB;User Id=UserName;Password=asdasd;"
This one's from Microsoft, the following are from Oracle
 Standard Security:
"Provider=OraOLEDB.Oracle;Data Source=MyOracleDB;User Id=Username;Password=asdasd;"


 Trusted Connection:
"Provider=OraOLEDB.Oracle;Data Source=MyOracleDB;OSAuthent=1;"


 OracleConnection (.NET)


 Standard:
"Data Source=Oracle8i;Integrated Security=yes";
This one works only with Oracle 8i release 3 or later
 Declare the OracleConnection:

C#:
using System.Data.OracleClient;
OracleConnection oOracleConn = new OracleConnection();
oOracleConn.ConnectionString = "my connectionstring";
oOracleConn.Open();

VB.NET:
Imports System.Data.OracleClient
Dim oOracleConn As OracleConnection = New OracleConnection()
oOracleConn.ConnectionString = "my connectionstring"
oOracleConn.Open()


 Data Shape


 MS Data Shape:
"Provider=MSDataShape.1;Persist Security Info=False;Data Provider=MSDAORA;Data Source=orac;user id=username;password=mypw"
