BDE on Windows 2008 64 Bit

I have successfully installed BDE on Windows 7 64 bit, by installing to C:\BDE instead of C:\program files (x86)\BDE.  I am having trouble getting this to run properly on Windows 2008 64 Bit Citrix server.  When I add my database and try to connect to it it get this error

Cannot load an IDAPI service library File:  SQLORA8.dll.  

I know this is very old software, but I have successfully installed on Windows 7.  Does anyone have any idea how to get this to run on Windows Server 2008 R2?

Thanks

Hi, think we have to do some basic checks here:

- what is BDE and does it have any dependencies (other software)?
- is sqlora8.dll present in c:\bde or one of it's subfolders?
- if yes -> check whether c:\bde\<path to sqlora8.dll> is in you PATH
- did you install in c:\program files\bde under Windows 7 and if so why did you change now?
