Hi Felix;

  The PB IDE is still a 32bit app, so make sure that you also install the 32 bit OCI.dll client as well. FYI: in PB 2022 you can run Apps directly from the PB IDE in either 32 or 64 bit mode. So make sure that you always install both Oracle Client bitnesses. BTW: I personally like the Oracle Instant Client the best but, that's just IMHO. HTH 

Regards ..  Chris
