You can install different versions of dotConnect for Oracle on the same computer at the same time.

You can use several versions of dotConnect for Oracle in your deployment environment.

We do not recommend to install several versions of dotConnect for Oracle in the development environment because design time will not work correctly in this situation.

In order to install several dotConnect for Oracle versions to one computer, please perform the following actions:
1) delete the HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Devart\Installed Products\dotConnect\Net2\Oracle key for x86 operating system and HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\Devart\Installed Products\dotConnect\Net2\Oracle key for x64 operating system before each new provider installation;
2) be aware that each dotConnect for Oracle installation package places the policy.*.Devart.* files to GAC. If you use several versions of our provider, you should remove these policy files from your GAC.
