Visual Studio 2012 Express for Web not detected during installation.

I have installed Visual Studio 2012 Express for Web and need to install the Oracle Developer Tools for Visual Studio, but when I run the ODT installation, it does not pick up any visual studio installation.

Is there a work around for this issue, or will I need to change to a different version of Visual Studio?

    Hi,

    You'll need to install a full version of Visual Studio. Per the readme:

    http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/topics/dotnet/downloads/install112030-1440546.html
    <SNIP>
    Note: Visual Studio Express Editions are not supported with the Oracle Developer Tools. However, ODP.NET is supported with Visual Studio Express Edition.
    </SNIP>

    So, you can still use ODP and code things "manually" to access the database, but the Oracle Developer Tools won't work.
