Issue with accessing Oracle database using DirectQuery

Hello everyone, I need help due Direct Query Error .
I’m trying to contact with Oracle Schema using an Direct Query option but unfortunately it gives me this Error Message:
“Cannot load model
We couldn't connect to your DirectQuery data source or internal model. Double-check that your server and database names are correct, and that you have permission to access them.

The managed provider 'Oracle.DataAccess.Client' could not be instantiated. Unable to find the requested .Net Framework Data Provider. It may not be installed. “

Noted that Oracle driver
already installed and also .Net framework
And I can access data sources using lmport option
