"Can not obtain Oracle client..." error in Direct mode

"Can not obtain Oracle client..." error in Direct mode

Postby showdep » Thu 08 Jul 2010 04:38

Hello,

I am using dotConnect for Oracle 5.70.146 to access Oracle 10g Express Edition. No Oracle client installed, I want to use direct mode. My connection string is as follows (all according to http://www.devart.com/dotconnect/oracle ... tMode.html):

User Id=SYS;Password=1q2w3e;Direct=true;Data Source=127.0.0.1;Port=1521;SID=XE

My code:

DbProviderFactory fact = DbProviderFactories.GetFactory();
_dbConnection = fact.CreateConnection();
_dbConnection.ConnectionString = ;
_dbConnection.Open();

Open method throws an exception:

"Can not obtain Oracle client information from registry. Make sure that Oracle Client Software is installed, or use Direct mode of connecting to server."

My understanding is that since I use direct mode dotConnect should not not check anything with the registry, so I find this message misleading. In any case, what am I doing wrong?

Thanks,
Sergey

Could you please tell us your current edition of dotConnect for Oracle? Please note that Express Edition doesn't support the Direct mode: http://www.devart.com/dotconnect/oracle/editions.html . We will investigate the situation why the Direct parameter is parsed without error in the connection string of OracleConnection from Express Edition.

You are right, it was dotConnect Express. Pro Trial seems to work properly.
Thanks a lot!
