Data Compare throws an error for Oracle. 


2020-08-06 10:46:40 - Exception Message: Attempt to load Oracle client libraries threw BadImageFormatException.  This problem will occur when running in 64 bit mode with the 32 bit Oracle client components installed.

I could see 64 bit oracle client on server. 


Release : 4.8

Component : CA Test Data Manager


It appears that the issue is between the SQL Client and the SQL Server.  It does not have anything to do with our products.

I also was wondering if you had rebooted recently just to be sure the memory was cleared out.

turned out that TDoD was pointing to an oracle server and it should have been SQL.
