Good Afternoon,

I have a 32 bit corporate application running on a WIndows 2008 server.  I have modified the registry keys for both the hkey_local_machine\software\ODBC  and hkey_local_machine\software\WOW6432Node folders to ensure the MS Access Driver is pointing to the 32 bit Oracle driver installed.  I have created the System DSN to point to the Oracle 32 bit driver as well.  

The driver and setup in each of these folders has:


I have attached screen shots of the error messages I am getting in MS Access.  I believe the issue is that MS Access is still pointing to the 64 bit driver.    I am getting an architecture mismatch error between application and driver.  

Any suggestions are welcomed.

Thank you.
