Oracle DB Client 10g does not support Windows 10. I would recommend upgrading to Oracle Client 126.96.36.199, which does support the OS.
I am not getting the download version for Oracle Client 188.8.131.52.. i am getting the Database for Oracle 184.108.40.206.
sorry i am new to oracle not sure what is the difference between Oracle DB Vs. Oracle client.
Please if possible share any link to download the client version.
The Oracle Client allows your application to connect to the Oracle DB server.
You can download the Oracle Data Provider for .NET (ODP.NET) here, The ODAC download includes ODP.NET.
If you are new to ODP.NET, I would recommend using managed ODP.NET (Oracle.ManagedDataAccess.dll). You can find beginner tutorials to get started using ODP.NET here.
Thank you for your update. that really helps me a lot.
i have install Oracle client 12 and refer in my .net application (VS 2008).
but now i am getting different error " vshost.exe has stopped working". can you please help to solve this issue.
vshost.exe is a Visual Studio hosting process that enables debugging features. It's not directly related to ODP.NET nor Oracle.
There's probably some issue with how you have debugging setup. If you google this error, you will see suggestions for how to resolve it.
Thank you for your response.
i am able to to resolved the "vshost stopped working" issue.
but again i am getting some other error " application.exe file stopped working". This error is appearing when is pinged to conn.open(). method.
i have reinstalled both VS 2008 and oracle client but no luck.
in the application log i am getting this details:

For your reference i am attaching the error screenshot .
I haven't seen this problem before. It sounds more like a generic VS issue than one related to ODP.NET. Can you connect to the Oracle DB via the Oracle tools for Visual Studio? The tools also use ODP.NET to connect.
