Oracle Developer Tools

Oracle has recently released a beta version of ODT. While betas can be a pain in the rear at time I felt it was work the effort to check this out. I ran into problems from the begining as soon as I fired up Visual Studio .NET. I simply can not get ODT to load properly.

Package 'Oracle Developer Tools for Visual Studio .NET' has failed to load properly ( GUID = {D601BB95-E404-4A8E-9F24-5C1A462426CE} ). Please contact package vendor for assistance. Application restart is recommended, due to possible environment corruption. Would you like to disable loading this package in the future? You may use 'devenv /resetskippkgs' to re-enable package loading.

I am not sure why this is occuring so I have post this issue at the Oracle ODP.NET forums. In the meatime if anyone has experience this and was able to resolve the issue I would love to hear from you.

I am really looking forward to getting this release working! Take a look at the features:
