BadImageFormatException on configure a ORACLE 32 bits app on a IIS7

Dear Experts,

I have a 32 bits ASP.NET application that works with Oracle Data Client.

I'm in process to migrate this app (currently runs on a IIS6) to a new IIS7.

On the new server I have (I need to have) both 32 and 64 bits Oracle clients.

The problem is that when I try to load the app, a BadFormatException is raised from IIS7. The error is saying that I'm trying to load the 64 bits Oracle client, when I want to load 32 version.

How can config my app or "I don't know what" to use specifically the 32 bits client?

Thanks in advance.

This sounds to be a problem with the oracle connector (possibly installed in x64 mode)
See the link below for a means to run 32 bit and 64 bit oracle side by side:

I am assuming based on your post there are no issues with running 32 bit apps on your IIS server and you have already enabled 32bit apps for .net.
