System.Data.OracleClient requires Oracle client software version 8.1.7 or greater
Posted on 2014-12-23
I get the error "System.Data.OracleClient requires Oracle client software version 8.1.7 or greater" whenever my application tries to connect to Oracle. Any ideas? All of the articles that I find online are talking about Oracle not having been installed correctly (permissions on Oracle home directory). But that just doesn't make any sense to me why I would get such an error on the client side that would be cause by Oracle having been installed incorrectly . Here's my setup:
Client: WCF webservice (C#), Windows Server 2008, .NET 4.5 (using native .NET Oracle client, not Oracle Oracle client)
Server: Unix hosting Oracle 11
Thanks in advance!
