ODBC connection error to a Oracle 11g


I am having problem getting Crystal Reports 2008 to connect to an Oracle 11g R2 database via ODBC. I am able to configure the "Local Net Service Name" with out an issue. I can go into the ODBC connection and create a new connection for the database with no problem. Going into Crystal Reports 2008 I get the following error;

Logon failed

Details: IM003: Specified driver could not be loaded due to system error

193: (Oracle in OraClient11g_home1, <Install path>\BIN\SQORA32.DLL). [Database Vendor Code: 160]

Looking into this error most seems to come from that the fact that a 32bit driver was installed instead of a 64bit driver. I do not believe this is the case, here is my environment;

Crystal Computer;

Windows 7 Home Premium 64bit

Crystal Reports 2008 version

Oracle client 64bit

Oracle Computer;

RHEL 5 32bit

Oracle 11g Release 2
