Devart.Data doesn't exist in Visual Studio C# 2010 Express?

Postby vashnik » Sat 19 Mar 2011 05:35

I just installed it an hour ago and I'm already fed up with your product.
It's been added to machine.config automatically for .NET Framework 2.x, 3.x and 4.x. Visual Studio C# 2010 Express was restarted. I even added it to app.config for my application and still nothing.
Tools | MySQL | Update Wizard does not exist in Express.
I'm trying to connect to a MySQL database via Console and your product won't even show up.

What the hell am I missing? What the hell do I need to do so I can start using the C# code "using Devart.Data" and it actually shows up and actually works without the damn IDE complaining about Devart not existing so I can finally start learning to manipulate MySQL through a console window?

None of your help documents (online/offline) or any of your other help files have helped me figured WTF I'm missing. It would be so much easier if the IDE had code to access a MySQL database without any additional support from 3rd Party Software so I didn't have to deal with problems like this. ¬¬

Please refer to the dotConnect for MySQL compatibility page: "There are some limitations in Express Editions of Visual Studio. The following features are not available: provider add-in, automatic toolbox components registration and DDEX integration."

Where did you expect dotConnect for MySQL would be shown up?

Have you added references to the Devart.Data.MySql.dll and Devart.Data.dll assemblies into your Console Application?

Please refer to our tutorials at http://www.devart.com/dotconnect/mysql/docs/?GettingStarted.html (e.g., Logging Onto The Server).
