System.Data.OracleClient requires Oracle client software version 8.1.7 or greater Error!!
Posted on 2009-04-07
I am having following setup:
Com1: This machine has Oracle 10g XE installed and i am developing my application here in .Net 3.5 sp1. The application is to backup data on the machine using oracle database.
Com2: This machine is having .net framework 3.5 sp1 installed and is not having Oracle.
When i run my application from com1, it successfully connects to database and backups the data.
But, on running the application from com2 i get following error : "System.Data.OracleClient requires Oracle client software version 8.1.7 or greater"
I am using the OracleClient class to access Oracle in my application.
I far as i know we do not need to install Oracle client on every machine where we need to run an application accessing oracle server.
Please tell what can be the possible cause of this error.
