    ODP.NET4, "The type initializer for 'Oracle.DataAccess.Client.OracleConnection' threw an exception."



      I created a VS2010 VB.NET project x86 compiled.

      I use ODP.NET4 for the OracleConnection. For the first time, when I try to run my application on a Windows XP machine, I get this error:


      "The type initializer for 'Oracle.DataAccess.Client.OracleConnection' threw an exception.


      Stack Trace:

         in Oracle.DataAccess.Client.OracleConnection.Dispose(Boolean disposing)

         in System.ComponentModel.Component.Finalize()"


      The machine has the Oracle Client 11g installed and also the ODP.NET4 correctly installed as the ODAC instructions say.

      I never ran into this problem, my application has always worked on other machine, I tried everything i could or i read on the web but nothing worked...


      Could someone help me?
