What is the Oracle.DataAccess version number for oracle 11g? We downloaded win32_11gR2_client ran the setup and it installed this version: 2.112.1.0.

My co-worker thinks it should be something like 4.112.x.x.

I have no idea.

Can you please tell me which one we should use and where to get it.

You won't like the answer to this...

First: From all my experience, the versions must match 100%.  Not even apps compiled with minor version differences will run.

That said:  The ODP.Net verions only recently follows the release numbers for the Oracle version and even now, only somewhat.

So for your DLL 2.112.1.0, that is supposed to mean:  11gR2 version 11.2.0.1.

The 'older' version 4.112.x.x, I've never seen a matrix that references the Oracle verions to DLL numbers.

Check the version of the client install where the 4.112.x.x DLL is residing.

If it's a  or above, it cal be downloaded from oracle.com.
