Oracle Support?

I am trying to set up an Oracle database in my installer. I am working off the ODBC_Connect example but I am not having any luck. I am using the connection string "Driver=Microsoft ODBC for Oracle;Server=localhost:1521/database;Uid=system;Pwd=system". This is failing and an msi log file generates:

Action ended 14:45:52: ODBC_Connect. Return value 3.
DEBUG: Error 2896:  Executing action ODBC_Connect failed.
The installer has encountered an unexpected error installing this package. This may indicate a problem with this package. The error code is 2896. The arguments are: ODBC_Connect, ,

However, the strange thing is that I can connect with the ODBQ.exe tool using the same connection string so I don't see the problem.

Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

Examine the MSI log for a more detailed error above this one. Maybe copy-paste it here?

Don't worry, this problem is redundant now. This is no longer a requirement for my installer.
