Does the ODAC for 12 released on Oct 5 work?

I have a customer who installed Server 12 and downloaded the latest ODAC 12 xcopy zip.

She installed them, but couldn't connect to the database.  Either by Oledb or ODP.Net.

She then installed the latest 11 g release of ODAC and it all worked.

Does the 12 ODAC install stuff actually work?

    Yes, it works. Is your customer using the 32-bit or 64-bit xcopy? What error does she receive when trying to connect?

    I'm pretty sure it was 32 bit xcopy.  I know she did an "all" on the install.

    Just now I am trying various versions of installer on my Win7 64 bit system.  I tried one and when it was done, no 32 bit or 64 bit driver options showed up in udl editor.  Another one said I needed java (which I already have about 3 versions of).  The current one I am trying, ODTwithODAC121024, said it gave me VS tools.  But during the install, it said I needed to install VS first.  IT IS INSTALLED.  I tried installing the latest java versions and something blocked the download and install.  Probably McAfee.

    We'll see how far I get when I tell it to skip the VS Tools part, but I kind of wanted that.

    Oh, and where ODP.NET fails for the client, we can't get an error message out.  But for the OleDB part, it doesn't show up as a choice in the 32 bit UDL editor.

    Ok, after the install finished, not only do I not have the VS integration, but there is no Oracle driver listed in the 32 bit UDL editor.

    IIRC, only OLE DB data sources show up in the Data Link properties window. There should not be any ADO.NET data providers there. Oracle OLE DB should be there. I see it on my own machine with ODAC installed. What is the UDL editor that you are using?

    For Oracle Developer Tools to install into VS with the ODAC version you used, you need to have VS 2015, 2013, or 2012. Also, it cannot be a VS Express Edition. MS does not allow plug-ins for Express Editions. What VS version are you using? If using an older version, you will have to use an earlier ODAC version. The install instructions for each download will describe which VS versions are supported.

    If you cannot get an ODP.NET error message out, what exact problem do you see that indicates there is a problem?
