Trying to add a reference to System.Data.OracleClient.Dll", dated 3/18/2010. I know that this support will be deprecated in FUTURE versions, but isn't it supposed to work now?

Thanks for reporting this issue. We shipped System.Data.OracleClient.dll in the full version .NET Framework 4.0, but not as a part of the client SKU. The decision was made to align with our decision to deprecate the component.

For you to reference System.Data.OracleClient.dll in your project, you need to have your project to target “.NET Framework 4” not “.NET Framework 4 Client Profile”. You can change the target by bring up the properties of your project (Solution Explorer/Right click on the project / “Properties”) and select “Application” tab. Change “Target framework:” to “.NET Framework 4” from “.NET Framework 4 Client Profile”. As a side note, the machines where you are deploying your application will need to have the full version of .NET Framework 4.0 installed rather than the client version.

As this is intended behavior, we will resolve this issue as “By Design”. If you still have a problem with this issue, please don’t hesitate to contact us. Thanks again for reporting this issue.
