SSIS 2008 - getting data from Oracle - oledb drivers issue

Hi All,

I am currently wanting to build a package to extract data from Oracle 9i to SQL Server 2008 R2.  I started by going to the start menu and then selecting "Import and Export Data (64-bit)" option from SQL 2008 menu items.  I connect my source to "Oracle Provider for OLE DB" I enter data source and my credentials and connectivity tests OK.  I proceed to my SQL Server destination select my table to extract and everything works just fine.  All rows transferred.  I also saved the package to use it inside of BIDS.

Now the problem.  I open a new project and import my newly created package into a new solution.  When I try to check on my Oracle "SourceConnectionOLDB" I get the following message:  "The specific provider is not supported" and also when I test the connection I get "The 'OraOLEDB.Oracle.1' provider is not registered on the local machine."  

Another interesting issue is when I go to my solution and attempt to add datasources I do not see in the drop down the source "Oracle Provider for OLE DB" that I get to see when I run "Import and Export Data (64-bit)" option from the start menu.  

I can connect fine and get my data from Oracle using "Import and Export Data (64-bit)" but when I use that same package from BIDS I get all the connection errors.

Any ideas on how to get BIDS to see the proper "Oracle Provider for OLE DB"?

My systems:
Windows Server 2008 R2 ENT
SQL Server 2008 R2 ENT
Oracle 11g 11.2 64-bit client

Thank you.

Thank you.  Just found out that BIDS is a 32-bit application only.
