We have one user (a developer) who is experiencing issues with Oracle DataAccess based on whether they are setup as a local administrator on their PC or not.
I dont know the inner workings of Oracle, so im really struggling to figure this one out. My research seems to suggest the problem is around the oracle.dataaccess.dll and maybe linked to the fact that they have Visual Studio 2012 installed.
If the user is configured as a local administrator on thier PC, and they try to run an application they get the following error:
If they are NOT an administrator, the application runs (but they have other problems related to not being as admin - they need admin permissions).
I have a feeling it is something to do with Oracle trying to look at the incorrect version of the .dll. I have read some things about accessing the GAC and getting Oracle to reference a different version of the .dll, but as this stuff does not mean a lot to me I am getting out of my depth.
Your help is appreciated!
