Getting MySQLDirect .NET to show as data provider in VS 2003

Postby jwillsey » Wed 08 Dec 2004 17:25

In Visual Studio 2003, how do I get MySQLDirect .NET to show as a data provider when I add a new connection? I see many Microsoft OLE DB Providers to choose from, but don't see MySQLDirect .NET for MySQL after installing it.

MySQLDirect .NET is not OLE DB Provider, it is .NET data provider.
You can read about using .NET data providers in MSDN.

Thanks, but your advertising for MySQLDirect .NET says, "MySQLDirect .NET data provider can be used in the same way as the SQL Server .NET or the OLE DB .NET Data Provider."

You probably mean MySQLDirect .NET integration with Server Explorer design-time tool.
MySQLDirect .NET includes its own advanced tool named DbTools for MySQL.
You can read about using this tool in MySQLDirect .NET reference.
