It appears I need to wait till managed odp.net is available and get VS2010
Oracle database 11g r2 running on a web enabled(accessible Linux server 32b). Client a Windows XP 32b running VS2008 with Database Data Access Components Documentation 11g Release 2 (220.127.116.11) Oracle.DataAccess.dll 18.104.22.168
Sample Program modified for my own database from http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/articles/dotnet/cook-vs08-088541.html
Question what is the process to allow someone else to remotely to run this application. Just copying the exe file does not work. I believe they must register the dll but how.

Right now, the person you want to run that would need to have an Oracle client installed.
If you're using the managed provider instead, you include it as a reference, set Copy Local = True, and either make a simple installer (which Visual Studio can do for you) or copy the .dll along with the .exe and .config.
