Using ADO.NET to connect to Oracle DB

.net , db Lebanon
  • 13 years ago


    I've tried to connect to an Oracle DB (10g rel 1) but I can't because the .net framework provider requires oracle client software v. 8.1.7 to be installed.

    I have Oracle 10g Developer Suite, but the Oracle installer only allows me to install Oracle development tools without prompting me to install runtimes like the older installer used to.

    Does anyone have a pointer about this or about where I can find something regarding this issue?

    You Don't need the Application to connect to a Provider's database, all you need is the ODBC driver....Download the driver if it's not already available to you...
