Oracle client issue RRS feed

  • Question

  • Does anyone have experience setting up both 32 bit and 64 bit Oracle Data Access Components on a Windows 10 system running both Power BI 64bit and Visual Studio Community 2013 32 bit?

    Here is my problem. I have reports created in Visual Studio Community 2013 running on a Microsoft 2008R2 SSRS report server. I have been tasked to move them all into Power BI.

    I am also setting up a new PC. I installed Power BI first along with the 64 bit Oracle client Power BI required. When I installed VS 2013 next, I discovered I had a compatibility problem when I tried to run one of my reports against an Oracle database and got this message.

    An error occurred during local report processing.

    An error has occurred during report processing.

    Cannot create a connection to data source '<OracleData>'.

    Attempt to load Oracle client libraries threw BadImageFormatException. This problem will occur when running in 64 bit mode with the 32 bit Oracle client components installed.

    An attempt was made to load a program with an incorrect format. (Exception from HRESULT: Dx8007000B)
