Hi All,

I am trying to install a 3rd party application,which connects to oracle database in my windows 2008 R2 machine.
When i test the database connection i am getting the below error

"*For DBEngineType: 'Oracle' the selected provider invariant name is: 'Oracle.DataAccess.Client'*

*Test connection failed: Unable to find the requested .Net Framework Data Provider. It may not be installed*."

OracleDataAces is present in the C:\Windows\assembly path.I added the following lines in the machine.config also under Framework as well as Framework64 folder

" <DbProviderFactories>
<add name="Oracle Data Provider for .NET"
description="Oracle Data Provider for .NET"
PublicKeyToken=89b483f429c47342" />
still Iam getting the same error

.net Framework version is: 4.0
Oracle DataAccess Version is :

Do I have to set the path of the Oracle DataAccess or do i have to get the upgraded version of this?
Plz let me know what to do?
