Hi Experts,

I'm trying to connect to an Oracle database via my ASP.NET application but I'm getting this error:

System.Data.OracleClient requires Oracle client software version 8.1.7 or greater.

The server has:
- win server 2003
- IIS 6.0
- asp.net 2.0
- Oracle 10g Client

I found some solutions stating ORACLE_HOME (c:\oracle) folder security issues so I already added the following users, gave them Read & execute, & rebooted.

- IUSR
- ASP.NET
- IWAM
- Authenticated Users

I also imported System.Data.OracleClient into my bin folder within the application.

Don't what else to try.

Please help.

Thanks in advance.
