I have developed a application using VB6 which stores data in a database server.
Now my problem is during my installation on other PCs nearly 100, i need to install the oracle 8i Client Software on every PC, which is a tedious job.

Is there a way to connect to the Oracle Server with out installing Oracle Client software, I mean just by using some dlls.

My connection is

"Provider=MSDAORA.1;User ID=kishore;Password=kishore;Data Source=student;Persist Security Info=False;"

Can we give the server ip address and the port for Oracle in this Connection.

Help me urgently.

Can you not create a setup project that will install the 8i client for you?

This will be a tedious job because the oracle has to be configured at the client after installation.
Those config are unknown to users.
