I am developing a ClickOnce application using visual studio 2005 and written in C#.  The application connects to an oracle database (10g).  Is it possible to include oracle as one of the prerequisites that must e installed on the first download?

    Accepted Solution

    i assume that your application uses OCI (Oracle Call Interface) to connect to the database. That's reason you need orcale client installed to connect to database.
    i don't i know how to create c# deployment packages, anyway i think that it would be better just mention need of oracle client for c# application to work. you need not only install oracle client, but also configure tnsnames.ora to succesfully connect to database.
