cast 'ManagedDataAccess.Client' to 'DataAccess.Client'
Dec 11, 2012 11:21 AM
I get the error "Unable to cast object of type 'Oracle.ManagedDataAccess.Client.OracleConnection' to type 'Oracle.DataAccess.Client.OracleConnection'." when try to do something like
EntityConnectionStringBuilder myConn = new EntityConnectionStringBuilder();
myConn.Provider = "Oracle.ManagedDataAccess.Client";
myConn.ProviderConnectionString = "user id=****;password=*****;DATA SOURCE=****:1521/****";
myConn.Metadata = @"res://*/Model1.csdl|

If you have an .edmx model, there's a reference in it to Oracle.DataAccess near the top. You need to change that to Oracle.ManagedDataAccess in order to use the managed client with it.
