Do you have the Oracle client libraries installed on the PC? Can you connect to the Oracle server using sqlplus?

I was just checking for obvious problems - you'd be surprised how often that kind of thing goes wrong.

Sorry, but I know next to nothing about Windows DLLs, so I have no idea what that file is for of what is causing the error.
