Hello,

I am trying to install SAP BusinessObjects Data Services 4.1 SP2 in Windows 7.

Data Repository is 64-bit Oracle database.
PATH to oracle: C:\Oracle\product\11.2.0\client_1\bin;

I get an error below when I tried to connect using Data services designer.

"Cannot find NT Oracle server DLL (OCI.DLL). ensure that oracle is installed and the PATH variable points to correct lib directories"

Please assist. OCI.DLL file is found in the path mentioned above.  I am not sure what is missing.

If SAP BusinessObjects Data Services 4.1 is a 32Bit app, you need the 32Bit Oracle client and drivers installed.

I thought data services 4.1 is a 64bit. Am I wrong?

Don't know.  I'm only an Oracle person not a Business Objects person.  From a quick Google looks like it can be either.

Do you have the oci.dll in  C:\Oracle\product\11.2.0\client_1\bin?

Did you confirm your Data Services was 64Bit?
Triple check the Bitness of the Oracle Client you have installed matches that of Data Services.

Make sure you have both the 32 and 64 bit ODBC connections installed on the machine.
