The installed version of Oracle Data Access Components must be appropriate for —
The version of the Windows operating system running on your current computer (32-bit or 64-bit).

You can get the needed version of Oracle Data Access Components from the Oracle web site:
You must have a database user account with access to the

If you do not have an account with the appropriate access permission, you can create one. To learn how to do this, see the Oracle documentation.
