The setup routines for the oracle odbc driver could not be loaded due to system error code 14001

or when using it in a .NET application:

System.Exception: ERROR [IM003] Specified driver could not be loaded due to system error 14001 (Oracle Rdb Driver).
---> System.Exception: ERROR [IM003] Specified driver could not be loaded due to system error 14001 (Oracle Rdb Driver).

Note this works on some systems but not others.
