    ORA-12154 TNS: could not resolve the connect identifier specified - .NET

    user8678075
      I looked at the 5 or so threads about this error in the odp forum - none helped.
      I have a .net 4.0 web service on w2kr8 server (compiled X86). I get the error listed when trying to connect to my oracle db.
      I can tnsping the instance I'm trying to access successfully as well as sqlplus using this instance.
      The application can access the database within vs2010 in debug mode on the server.
      I have my tnsnames file under my client /network/admin

      Tried adding the TNS_ADMIN environment variable - this did not work either.
      Tried both copy local TRUE and FALSE
      There is only one oracle client installed on the server 11gR2 32 bit

      Any thoughts are appreciated.
