    Use Oracle Access Data Provider ODP.NET 

    I use it in mixed 32-bit / 64 bit environments, use with console apps, WPF apps, and ASP.NET website.

    They have GAC dependent Unmanaged driver with Oracle Client, and GAC independent with Oracle Client built in Managed driver.

    Current build is 12cR4

    Thanks for your reply. Could you provide me the details as step? what do i need to change into web.config and which ODP.net needs to install.

    Web config implies the application is running on a web server remote from the Surface device, and not directly on the Surface device.

    They should use Firefox or Internet Explorer on their connection Surface to Web Server and not the default Edge Browser in Surface with Windows 10.

    The Firefox or Internet Explorer should be able to connect the ASP.NET application on the web server.

    If your ASP.NET application is using javascript, that will need to be enabled in the browser settings on the Surface calling the web server application.

    If you are going to transition the web application on the web server to Oracle ODP.NET, you will need to do much reading and all your calls to the database will be different than ODBC.
