Can't create connection to Oracle


We have a problem when trying to connect our newly installed XI3 environment to Oracle.

We have BO XI3.0 installed on a 64bit Windows 2003 R2 Server (Standard x64 Edition Service Pack 2). On this Server we have also installed an Oracle 11.1.0 Client - which we need to be able to connect to our Oracle 9 DB.

When we from Designer try to create a connection via Oracle 11 Client we get following error:

The server is not responding (SBO0001):

CS: DBDriver failed to load : C:\Program Files (x86)\Business Objects\BusinessObjects Enterprise 12.0\win32_x86\dataAccess\connectionServer\dbd_oci.dll(%1 is not a valid Win32 application.)

..We get the same error if we try via the Oracle 9 Client connection option

Any suggestions much appreciated
