Discussion of open issues, suggestions and bugs regarding ADO.NET provider for Oracle
6 posts • Page 1 of 1
I have both VS2003 and VS2005 installed on my WIndowsXP computer. I was having trouble connecting to my Oracle database using OraDirect. I remove both the 2003 and 2005 version, all the IIS web sites, all the DLL's on the computer, and all regedit entries. Rebooted and installed both version of OraDirect. When I attempt to create a connection in the VS2005 server explorer, the test connect button works OK. The server connect shows up as "*invalid data specifier*.*invalid data specifier*" and does not work.
After entering hte connection information and clicking on the OK button the dialog closes. When I look at the VS2005 Server Explorer instead of the Database/server information I see the "invalid data specifier". Sometime when the Add Connection disloag appears it closes when I attemapt to type into the Server dropdown. I'm using version 3.55.21. ALso in the VS2003 Add Connection dialog "corelab OraDirect" doesn't even show up.
