Uninstall both programs; reinstall the full client only, specifying D: as the installation drive; re-link.

there is no uninstall for the instant client, you can just delete the instant client folder

then remove the env variable LD_LIBARY_PATH
and remove the instant client directory from PATH env variable

For Crystal just make sure the OLE connections you have all point to the correct place, in this case the D drive full client.
