Thanks

OraDirect .NET does not support Oracle Instant Client versions that do not register themselves in registry. We will support such Oracle Instant Clients in the next OraDirect .NET build

On the history page of OraDirect .Net it says that from version 2.40 there is support for Oracle 10g Instant Client.

Is there a version of Oracle Instant Client that uses the registry?

Thanks!

Yes, there are such versions of Oracle client. In installation of Oracle client you can choose to install "Instant Client" or "Standard Client". Both configurations register themselves in registry

Paul,

Oracle Instant Client does not require registry entries or any traditional Oracle homes. That is one of the benefits of using Instant Client. It uses environment variables to discern where the OCI and TNS are installed.

It is not necessary for some Oracle clients to store information in registry. The last versions of OraDirect .NET can work with Oracle client (Oracle instant client 10g) without using registry.
You have to include path to oci.dll to the Windows environment PATH variable at the first place. Set OracleConnection.HomeName property to empty string.
OraDirect .NET looks for information about homes in HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\ORACLE
