Does anyone know where to obtain (please provide a specific link) the Oracle Data Provider for .NET 3.5 ? If it matters I am using Microsoft Visual Studio 2008 (I know its getting old). The Oracle DB I am trying to access is Oracle Database Enterprise Edition 11g release 2 (11.2.0.1) and the oracle client I have installed is the same version. If possible, or available, I would like both the 32bit and 64bit versions.

Thanks ste5am,

Do you know if you can use the latest version with 11g R2 or do you have to match the versions. In other words is it backward compatible.  In addition I do not see .NET 3.5 listed. This is what it states:

       Oracle Data Provider for .NET 4 12.1.0.2.0
              Oracle Data Provider for .NET 2.0 12.1.0.2.0
              Oracle Providers for ASP.NET 4 12.1.0.2.0
              Oracle Providers for ASP.NET 2.0 12.1.0.2.0

It should be compatible. When you load it by nuget, you'll get the necessary version.

Unfortunately I don't see a version of nuget for VS 2008. I will look closer at the oracle downloads and let you know.

Hi exptech,

You have to choose Oracle Data Provider for .NET 2.0 12.1.0.2.0 for  .NET 3.5

 http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/topics/dotnet/utilsoft-086879.html

The version number of the .NET Framework doesn't necessarily correspond to the version number of the CLR it includes. Please check the below link.

Note: https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/8bs2ecf4(v=vs.110).aspx
For .NET Framework version 3.5 is CLR Version is 2.0

Regards,
Tapan Pattaniak.

Thanks ste5an,

I found the downloads I needed plus a wealth of information in using Oracle with Visual Studio. I have done Oracle work in the past using the .Net DAC but the oracle providers are being depreciated and ever since we upgraded our Oracle DB we were having strange problems with the MS Data providers, not to mention they were not really optimized the way the oracle providers are.
