cx_Oracle requires that you have the Oracle client installed on your PC.
Are you sure that you have this and that it's the right version?
If you are using cx_Oracle for 11g, the client library should be
the same version.
The main DLL of the client is called oci.dll. You can view the version
information of the DLL in the explorer.
