I have Visual Studio.Net 2008 in my Windows XP machine.
I have Oracle 10g client.
As one of my applications uses ODAC, I need to install ODAC now. The latest version of ODAC is ODAC 11.2 Release 3 (18.104.22.168.1) with Oracle Developer Tools for Visual Studio.
My question is, as I already have C:\Oracle\ folder if I install this ODAC again it installs one more oracle_home folder which I dont need.
Could you please suggest how how I can install it?
No, you will need to install the version of the Oracle client that the ODAC wants. You also have to decide between 32 bit and 64 bit.
One caution if you are new to Oracle and .Net, you will have to install the oracle client on the server and that creates a lot of problems.
