ODBC error - components not installed

I developed a VB program that works fine on my machine. But when my users try it, they get the following message:

Microsoft ODBC for Oracle

The Oracle(tm) client and networking components were not found. These components are supplied by Oracle Corporation and are part of the Oracle Version 7.3 (or greater) client software installation.

You will be unable to use this driver until these components have been installed.

In fact, when I went into the ODBC drivers and try to add a user DSN, as soon as I click on 'Microsoft ODBC for Oracle', I get the same message as above. Below is the connect string I'm using in my VB code:

gConnectString$ = "UID=" & UID$ & ";PWD=" & PWD$ & ";DRIVER={Microsoft ODBC for Oracle};SERVER=" & gDBName & ";"

where UID & PWD are the userid and password and gDBName = TCTST1 (the data base name)
