System.Data.OracleClient requires Oracle client software version 8.1.7 or greater.


I was trying to use OracleClient namespace for the first time, I wrote my first line of code…to try to connect to a Oracle db, and got this error!!
“System.Data.OracleClient requires Oracle client software version 8.1.7 or greater.”
Misleading….beacuse I know that I have ver 9.2 installed!
Luckily, Google is there to help, issue is related to permissions! and the solution is goven in this good blog post by Roy Tore Gurskevik,
