If you don't know what to do, why did you install it? How can we know what you wanted to do?

what have you tried so far? installing the Oracle software is not enough, you need to setup a database, put something in it, choose a provider (allowing access to the database, like, ODBC or OleDb) and connect with the provider and the correct connectionstring to the database through your code.

i have oracle database already on my PC,I downloaded ODAC1020221.exe
from oracle website its Oracle Data Access Components (ODAC) support widows XP and
the download includes:
Oracle Data Provider for .NET 1.x
Oracle Data Provider for .NET 2.0
up till now I installed the provider on my pc in folder on c drive.
actually, i found this subject
but i am afraid from removing Oracle database PATH from environment variable
because i use oracle also here.
