Unable to view drivers after installing DataDirect on a Windows 2003 server


Iu2019m having problems refreshing crystal reports using Infoview. The reports are stored on an Edge BI server; I keep getting an error message u201CFailed to open the connectionu201D.

I want to create an ODBC connection on the server with the same name and parameters as what I have on my desktop. However I canu2019t see any drivers listed, only for SQL server. Iu2019m running ODBC executable file found in Windows\SysWow64 which I understand is 32 bit though my OS (Windows server 2003 ) is 64-bit. Do I need to install Oracle Client on the server and ensure the path has an entry pointing to the client?

Can anyone kindly assist me? Iu2019m new to BOE and have to develop reports for a customer.
