How to create a project

When you want that your project supports Linq To Oracle, you should :
  • Place Linq Preview in Program Files,
  • Modify your project file (csproj or vbproj) to set the right target. You should find something like this :
<Import Project="C:\Program Files\LINQ Preview\Misc\Linq.targets" />
<!-- To modify your build process, add your task inside one of the targets below and uncomment it. 
Other similar extension points exist, see Microsoft.Common.targets.
<Target Name="BeforeBuild">
</Target>
<Target Name="AfterBuild">
</Target>
  • Copy all binaries provided in the zip file in a folder that you choose,
  • Reference these assemblies in your project,
  • Add ProviderAttribute on your class derived from DataContext. for example :
using System.Data;
using System.Data.DLinq;
using System.Data.DLinq.OracleClient;
using BusinessEntities;

[ProviderAttribute(typeof (OracleContext))]
public partial class Repository : DataContext
