I need to connect an application to Oracle. In the installation guide for that application it says that it requires 64 bit version of Oracle Data Access Component,more specifically . I have tried installing it but I am continuously getting the error attached in the image when ever I try running the installer. The crash details are given in the image attached. Has some one ever tried installing it? If yes then would it be possible to give some details or point me in the right direction so that I can complete this installation.
