We are attempting to run an old client\server application written in VB 6 and using the 10G Oracle OLEDB provider on a 64 bit Windows 7 machine and are encountering the following error shown in the attached image.

Initially we did have the 64 bit 10G (Vista) client installed; but, even after uninstalling that (including manual steps to remove items from registry and GAC), and installing the 32 bit client, we're still receiving this error. Error message
