Visual Studio - ClickOnce Oracle Client ?

Last Modified: 2013-12-16
I did the below steps, but get a
"System.data.oracleclient requires oracle
client software version 8.1.7 or greater" error.

How can I include in my APP without having to
manually install the "OracleClient" on 200+ PCs ?
 1. create new C# dot net 3.5 WinForms APP
 2. add "New Item", "Data", "DataSet"
 3. open Server Explorer WINDOW, "Connect to Database", "OracleClient"
 4. drag table onto "DataSet1.xsd"
 5. open "Form1.cs", open Data Sources WINDOW
 6. drag table onto "Form1.cs"
 7. deploy APP via ClickOnce
 8. get above error on some client PCs
