32-bit and 64-bit client coexist fine. 32-bit applications only "sees" the 32-bit client and 64-bit apps only "sees" 64-bit clients. Have both in the path.

We have a need to have both the 32 and 64 bit clients installed on a Windows 7 PC. In order for the 32-bit application to access the 32-bit Oracle client, due we have to alter the search "path" prior to invoking the 32-bit application or will it magically know to use the 32-bit Oracle dll's?
