Entity Framework Deployment Problem -Unable to find provider

Entity Framework Deployment Problem -Unable to find provider

Postby pleb » Tue 04 Nov 2008 01:00

Hi There,

I've built a little feed down loader which parses and saves the data in a database using the Entity Framework and MySQL provider.

I have some command lines args which force the creation and deletion of the database. These use raw ado.net and the MySQL driver. They work fine. :shock:

When I go to import the feed data I get this message

"The specified store provider cannot be found in the configuration, or is not valid."

However, when I run the command line program on my development box it works fine. :roll:

Initially I thought it'd be a dll missing from the deployment but CoreLab.Data and CoreLab.MySql are there.

Does anyone have any ideas, that I could try?

You should add to the machine.config section the following lines:
Code: Select all

Also check that the assembly CoreLab.MySql.Entity is available for your application.

Thank you for the hints.

I added the following to the app.config file (Machine config is a little to low level for one application)

Code: Select all


and included the CoreLab.MySql.Entity assembly in the deployment.

When deploying to another developer machine, adding the
bold section in web.config resolved my error.

Deploying WPF App with DotConnect for Oracle using ClickOnce

Postby dcuser » Fri 01 Jul 2011 10:09

Are you deploying using ClickOnce method or installSheild? We are having similar issues using clickOnce deployment method. I have tried both including the DBProviderFactory segment in app.config and including Oracle.Entity.dll file with the app. But, neither solves the error. I would appreciate any help.
