'Oracle.DataAccess, Version=184.108.40.206 System Cannot Find the File Specified
Posted on 2009-02-20
I am trying to run a program that was developed by another party. The program is a C#.NET application that was developed against an Oracle 11 database and Oracle 11 Client/SDK. The machine I need to run the program on has an Oracle 10g client and when I try to run the program I get the following unhandled exception:
System.IO.FileNotFoundException: Could not load file or assembly 'Oracle.DataAccess, Version=220.127.116.11, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=89b483f429c47342' or one of its dependencies. The system cannot find the file specified.
It appears that the application is looking for a specific version of the Oracle DLL but I do not understand why. Is there a way to make the application work with the Oracle 10g client?
Thanks for your thoughts,
