I want to upgrade to the latest version of ODAC, but I am concerned for two reasons:
1. I am not sure if it will require that the Oracle database server be updated
2. I am not sure if it will negatively affect other applications on the same windows box running the older version of the DLLs
Can anyone alleviate my concerns about this? It really sucks not being able to use Entity Framework because the old DLL didn't implement IServiceProvider.
