Oracle XE Client

Hello, currently my company has a RHEL server running Oracle.  We use Oracle XE Client 10g on Windows XP 32-bit to connect to the database in order to open up reports in Microsoft Excel.  We're trying to design an upgrade plan to move to Windows 7 64-bit from Windows XP 32-bit and I wanted to know what can we use to achieve the same goal with the new OS.  I've looked on Oracle's website and I can't find anything that will help me.  I found one link to some software somewhere on Oracle's site that I thought would help, but it didn't

Is there a software package out there that will help me accomplish my plan?  It doesn't have to be an Oracle product.  I just need it to create an ODBC connector to our Oracle database and be able to open up reports in Excel.

there is no 64 bit XE install for windows,  you can install the 32 bit on win7 64 bit,
you'll get an error but it will run.

but, if you want a 64 bit client (XE isn't a client, it's a database, which does include a client)  you can download 64 bit clients from otn.oracle.com

If I install the 32-bit client, what kind of error will I get and will it be repetitious?  Also, as for the XE not being a client, I may have stated the actual name wrong but what we're installing is a client based tool.  

I've attached a screenshot of the actual application during installation.

Thanks.

oh sorry, I missed the part about 10g.  I've used 32bit 11g on Win7.

the 10g stuff: client, database, XE and other editions are all desupported

try upgrading to 11g instant client - 64 bit versions are available

you can get odbc supplement (and other options) to instant client here
