Oracle Client connection failure

I have searched and cannot seem to find the answer to this problem anywhere.  I am trying to connect to an oracle db using enterprise manager via the client on my desktop.  I have uninstalled and cleaned up the registry and reinstalled and still no success.

The problem I'm having is a OCI prolem. When I put in the user name and password i get a error that says:  The procedure entry point OCIConnectionPoolDestroy could not be located in the dynamic link library OCI.dll

I have checked for the file and it is there and I have checked the path and it looks correct to me also.  I'm not sure where to go from this point.  Any help would be greatly appreciated.

What version of OEM do you have installed and what version of the database are you trying to talk with?

OEM became web based in 10g and is either Grid Control or dbConsole if installed locally in the database.

The old fat Java client OEM version was still on the old 10g install media and should be able to connect to a 10g database but is basically dead.

If you are runing that version of OEM then you might have a Java compatibility issue with the OS you are running.

Yeah I'm connected via a browser to the enterprise manager as well.  I wanted to be able to connect with the client as well.  I was pretty sure it was java issue due to the errors I was getting and thinking maybe that it could be solved with the latest java update but was curious if there was a fix beyond that if that wasn't the case. Also I was connected this way previously at another job and it was via XP as it is here so I didn't think that would be an issue.
