 Hi jimmy,

Thank you for you reply. Because I could not find a server right now, I should test it first before I agree or disagree with you, as most articles I have seen said that it require a Oracle Client to be installed(such as http://download.oracle.com/docs/cd/B19306_01/win.102/b14307/install001.htm#sthref61). I will test it soon. Thank you.

Thank you very much. I tried your 1st method. And it works now. Thank you very much. But for you second method, would you please offer some more guide? or provide some url? Thank you. 

If you are using a web application project, you will have a references node in your solution explorer under your website. This will list all assemblies that are consumed by your application, so you can select all the oracle DLLS and set it to COPY TO LOCAL to true so that the DLLS will be copied to your BIN folder. That way when you deploy your website you jsut need to deploy it with all the files in your BIN directory

Thank you,

I just don't know which oracle DLL files to be referenced. I know the first method, I referenced the Oracle.DataAccess.dll file. But I am now sure the second method. Thank you very much.


 And I do not get idea where to find the oracle dlls you mentioned. Would you please offer some further help? I am using VS2005. thanks.

The .dll you need to reference to is Oracle.DataAccess.dll, you should be able to find it in your Oracl Home's bin folder(i.e mine is c:\programm files\oracle_client10g\bin), or if you still do not know where is your oracle home at, do a search on Oracle.DataAccess.dll

Hi tryAsp6677, 

Thanks. This method is the first method mentioned by Jimmy. If I did not make any wrong I followed the guide at http://www.oracle.com/technology/pub/articles/cook_dotnet.html . I am not sure the second method [2. put the oracle assemblies in your BIN directory] mentioned by Jimmy very exactly. and I need further help. Thank you very much for sharing.

Search and find where your Oracle.DataAccess.dll is at, copy it and paste in your asp.net project's bin folder, if you do not have one yet, using VS open your website, then right click on the website name and select "Add asp.net folder-->bin". By doing this, you do not have to install odp.net on your web server, when you publish your website to the server, the .dll in the asp.net bin folder will be copied over to your webserve.

Choosing Oracle Client Version with Microsoft Managed Oracle Provider For .net
We need to change the Oracle Client that the System.Data.OracleClient uses to connect to our database on a server that has multiple versions of the Oracle Client. A different application on the server that we do not have control over is requiring the default ORACLE_HOME directory to remain an older Oracle 9i version of the client. Because of this, our applications using the Managed Oracle Provider for .net are using the 9i client to connect. We have a planned Oracle upgrade for our Database that will require us to use the new 10g version of the client that is also installed on the server, bu...
