The selected objects(s) use an unsupported data provider

i just downloaded the 5.0.22 release of the devart dotconnect for mysql, i wanted to see if some LINQ bugs got fixed yet. i created a new web site, created a .dbml file, created a new connection using the devart dotconnect provider, tested the connection, and then tried dragging a table over to the designer and got the error:

"the selected object(s) use an unsupported data provider."

did i do something wrong? i haven't had this issue before.

This error appears in case you add to your project the Microsoft LINQ to SQL classes and then drag&drop Oracle tables there.
We do not support this scenario, instead you should add to your project Devart LINQ to SQL Model.

i found it. you just didn't register it under the web project item types. if for example, i'm adding an item to a class library, there is an item for "Devart LINQ to SQL Model" but in a web project there is only the LINQ to SQL classes.

you guys should fix that in your install.
