cannot connect to oracle database server in crystal report development


I just tried to connect oracle database server when I tried to add the database connection in crystal report through Visual Studio 2015

So steps I followed as following

  1. Create an empty crystal report
  2. then right click on that report

    Database Expert > Create New Connection > OLE DB(ADO) > Provider > Microsoft OLE DB Provider for Oracle

Then Following window

once I give above details and hit the finish I'm getting following error


Logon failed Details: ADO Error code: 0x80004005 Source: Microsoft OLE DB Provide for Oracle Description ]: Oracle client and networking components were not found These components are supplied by Oracle Corporation and are part of the Oracle Version 7.3.3 or later client software installation.

Provider is unable to funtion until these components are installed.

I'm having 32-bit Visual Studio 2015, in my Local machine I have installed 32-bit Oracle Client and Oracle Database server that is I'm going to connect has 64-bit Oracle 11g database

What should I do to make this work?
