hi all,
i am using VS 2005 and i try to open an oracle database using such code:
OleDbConnection connection = new OleDbConnection(connectionString);
    ConnectionMonitor monitor = Monitor;

    if ( monitor != null )
    {
      monitor.Add( new ConnectionInfo( connection ) );
    }
    connection.Open();
---------------------------------
when i  try to run my web application, the error message pops up: The 'OraOLEDB.Oracle' provider is not registered on the local machine.
the error occurs at "connection.Open();".
i installed oracle 11g on my machine. and i try to add it in control panel > adminstrative tools > ODBC data source administrator > user DSN tab > click 'add' button > in 'create new data source' window, select 'oracle in oraodac11g_home1' > click 'finish' button > i got an error 'the setup routines for the oracle in oraodac11g_home1 ODBC driver could not be loaded due to system error code 126' > click 'ok' button > an message pops up 'could not load the setup or translator library'

how to solve this problem? i am really struggling with it.

thanks a lot

hi, i tried the permission setting solution. it doesn't work for me. but i solve it by installing the full version of oracle 11g not the client tool.

thanks a lot
best regards
