what options of connection string should i use to connect to oracle


I was trying to connect to my oracle server. I am getting the error

using System;

using System.Data.OracleClient;

namespace DataAccess



           public DBconnect()


                     OracleConnection oOracleConn = new OracleConnection();

                    oOracleConn.ConnectionString = "Data Source = sadev" + "User ID=scott"+"Password = tiger";






I am getting the error

An unhandled exception of type 'System.Exception' occurred in system.data.oracleclient.dll

Additional information: Could not create an environment: OCIEnvCreate returned -1.

Can nyone tell me the problem ?

Is the connection string sufficient or should I use some other paramaters?

try modifying your connection string:

oOracleConn.ConnectionString = "Data Source = sadev;User ID=scott;Password = tiger;";


SELECT * FROM users WHERE clue = 'yes';

Make sure the ASPNET account and the Authenicated Users group both have Read & Execute pemissions to your Oracle homes directory.
