Is the TNS_ADMIN a separate key outside of the oracle key in the registry. Going to look to see if it is set someone where else.

I also noticed I did not have the oracle_home variable set on that machine.

Check the registry settings for the oracle home in use. It is possible that there is a setting there, and if so, it will not show up when you use SET.
