          Hello,

          first of all, Oracle 10gR2 is out of premier support since more then a year - so if you hit a unkown bug or other issue there's no fix without extended support purchased extra.

          Next, EF/LINQ is supported only by ODP.NET 2.112.3 / 4.112.3 and later shipped with Client 11.2.0.3 or
          ODAC 11.2 Release 4 (11.2.0.3.0)

          http://www.oracle.com/technetwork/developer-tools/visual-studio/downloads/index.html

          So - Oracle 10gR2 shipped ODP releases do NOT support EF/LINQ. Sorry

          Frank

            You can use Entity Framework if you're connecting to a 10g R2 server, but you need to be using the recent 11g client as fscherie explained.
