Another developer at our company has written a WCF service that is the "conduit" for access to our Oracle database from our website. He will be going on a month long leave next week. I am trying to get the development environment setup where I can maintain this project while he is gone.

We have the Oracle Data Access reference in the project. It says Version=2.102.2.20
I am not sure what version client I currently have installed, nor know how to determine this.

What client should I install on my machine so I will be able to continue working with this project?

>>Version=2.102.2.20

This is the ODAC 10.2.0.2.  The first "2" is .Net version 2.  The newer ODAC versions come with .Net 2 and 4 drivers.  When you install it, you need 2 if the 10g has both versions.

The ODAC downloads are here:

10.2 is down towards the bottom.

But that also installs the Oracle client?

It depends on what you mean by 'client'.

It installs everything necessary to connect to an Oracle database from third party apps using Oracle drivers (you can choose the specific drivers you want).

The 'client' can also mean things like sqlplus, the utilities like import/export/sqlloader, and some other things.  These utilities are not part of the ODAC.
