Crystal 2008 Compatible with Windows Server 2008 64bit

I have a Crystal Reports 2008 report that was written using an Oracle 32bit driver on Windows XP.
I just upgraded my pc to windows server 2008 and tried reinstalling the Oracle Driver, but wasn't able to.
After doing some research, I have noticed that Crystal Reports 2008 is not compatible with Windows Server 2008 64bit.

I have a couple of questions.
1. Does oracle support a 32bit driver for Crystal Reports on Windows Server 2008?
2. If all parties are supported, are there any addtional settings, permission or patches I need to have in place to get this report to work.

Thank you

Oracle has a 32 bit driver. http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/database/enterprise-edition/downloads/112010-win32soft-098987.html Install it.

Make sure that you have installed the oracle data access installed when you install crystal reports.
