[ms4w-users] [UNCLASSIFIED]Problem connecting to Oracle Spatial

I have installed ms4w 2.1 and version 1 of the Oracle 10g client. I have swapped the libmap.dll library and added the following lines to Apache's httpd.conf file:
SetEnv ORACLE_HOME "c:/oracle/product/10.1.0/Client"
SetEnv TNS_ADMIN "c:/oracle/product/10.1.0/Client/NETWORK/ADMIN"
SetEnv PATH "c:/oracle/product/10.1.0/Client/bin"

and I think I have the layer in the mapfile correct:
    name           nvis1
    connectiontype oraclespatial
    connection     "user/pass at service"
    data           "location from grid"
    status         on
    type           point

but I still cannot connect to Oracle spatial. When I enter http://localhost/cgi-bin/mapserv.exe?map=c:/ms4w/apps/lccsApp/vegetation.map <http://localhost/cgi-bin/mapserv.exe?map=c:/ms4w/apps/lccsApp/vegetation.map&layers=nvis1&mode=map> &layers=nvis1&mode=map in my browser, I get the following error:
msDrawMap(): Image handling error. Failed to draw layer named 'nvis1'. 
msOracleSpatialLayerOpen(): OracleSpatial error. Cannot create OCI Handlers. Connection failure. Check the connection string. Error: ORA-12560: TNS:protocol adapter error .
I have no problem connecting using sqlplus using the same connect string.
The only non-standard thing is that I had the 8i client already installed and I installed 10g alongside it. I have since removed 8i and used the registry editor to change all references to 10g.
Any ideas why I can't connect?
