Creating a package with Oracle ODP.NET.

Dear experts,

I have written an VB.Net application. The application connects to Oracle using ODP.NET. What I wonder is can I package this application with ODP.NET included without having to install ODT in the client machine?

I think you can redistribute the Oracle.DataAccess DLL, but you will have to have a client installed on the target machine.

The client already exists. How can I include Oracle.DataAccess DLL into setup package? Is there any extra step?
