SQL Report Manager Generates "Attempt to Load Oracle Client Libraries Threw BadImageFormatException."

(Doc ID 793653.1)

Last updated on JULY 03, 2017

Applies to:

Oracle Data Provider for .NET - Version 10.2.0.5 and later
Microsoft Windows x64 (64-bit)

***Checked for relevance on 03-Jul-2017***

Symptoms


When the reports are run from Visual Studio they use the internal 32 bit Oracle Providers and connect to the Database successfully. But when the same report is deployed on MS Report Server and run then the tool displays the error:

"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."
