    Hi Everyone,

    When I try to create a new domain model for my app and set the connection to my Oracle database (version 11g) I get teh following error:

    Unable to retrieve the database schema information.
    Reason: The provider is not compatible with the version of Oracle client


    It seems to be using the native .NET Oracle adapter. Is it only compatible with version of Oracle up to 10g?

    Can anyone provide any tips on this?

    Thanks.

    Hi Kevin,

    Telerik OpenAccess ORM uses the ODP.NET client provided by Oracle, which could be downloaded here. You can find the provider settings in you app.config file. Change the providerName attribute of the connection string to "Oracle.DataAccess.Client" and Telerik.OpenAccess ORM will use the ODP.NET Client.
    Hope this helps.

    All the best,

    Hi LessX,

    Unfortunately only the express editions of Oracle are supported with the free edition of Telerik OpenAccess ORM. 

    Feel free to ask if you have any other question.
