I'm running Win7x64 with Oracle client. I can connect to the particular instance using TNSNAMES.ora fine from: Sqlplus and Toad. When I try to create a new DataSource in VS2005, I get the ORA-12154.

I tried the following:

1. Added WRITE security on ORACLE_HOME folder.
3. Created another TNSNAMES entry with FQDN as #2 above.

I also downloaded: ODTwithODAC1020221.exe but when I installed, I received the following:

Starting Oracle Universal Installer...

Checking operating system version: must be  4.0, 5.0, 5.1, 5.2 or 6.0 .    Actua
