Use Oracle 6 from ASP.NET application
I have an ASP.NET 2.0 web application. It uses "System.Data.OracleClient, Version=126.96.36.199" to access an oracle database.
I get the following exception on connection:
System.Data.OracleClient requires Oracle client software version 8.1.7 or greater.
I looked it up and found several articles/posts that say that the error is misleading and it is caused by some security issues of ASP.NET user trying to access oracle HOME folder.
However in my case my client's oracle client is indeed older that 8.1.7. In fact it is version 6! I know this is very old but you understand that this cannot change.
What other alternatives do I have?
