These instructions apply the Oracle Database 12c on Windows install only. They do not apply to ODAC installs nor any subsequent database releases.

====================

The Oracle Database 12c on Windows installation package (32-bit client, 64-bit server, and 64-bit client) includes a xcopy installable version of ODP.NET, Managed Driver. Each of these installation packages contains both the ODP.NET, Managed Driver assemblies for 32-bit and 64-bit .NET Framework.

 

To install ODP.NET, Managed Driver from the Oracle Database 12c on Windows installation package, follow the instructions below.

 

1. Download 32-bit Oracle Database 12c client, 64-bit Oracle Database 12c server or client for Windows.

2. Install the software. Ensure that Oracle Data Provider for .NET is selected as a component to be installed.

3. ODP.NET, Managed Driver is now installed on the machine. It must now be configured. Run the configure.bat script in one of the following directories:

  • For 32-bit .NET Framework: ORACLE_HOME\odp.net\managed\x86
  • For 64-bit .NET Framework: ORACLE_HOME\odp.net\managed\x64

 

Each directory contains an unconfigure.bat if ODP.NET, Managed Driver needs to be unconfigured and removed from the machine.
