I just encountered a problem after installing ODAC 32bit on Windows Server 2003 64bit.
First,I installed ODAC 32bit client and my ASP.NET projec's database is Oracle.
Then,I deployed the project onto IIS 6.
However,when browsing,I encountered an error:canot find the .net data provider,it may not be installed.
so, anyone can help me?

    Did you set the build type on the project to x86? If it's set to AnyCPU (the default), on a 64 bit OS it will try to run as a 64 bit application. To do that you need the 64 bit Oracle client.

    Simplest solution is to change the build configuration in Visual Studio to x86 (which is 32-bit). That will let it use the Oracle client you installed.
