No MySQLDirect in Toolbox in Visual Studio 2005

No MySQLDirect in Toolbox in Visual Studio 2005

Postby schnieds » Wed 26 Jul 2006 07:33

Hi,

I have a licensed version of MySQLDirect. I just downloaded the latest version of MySQLDirect (3.20) and installed it for .NET 2. I also downloaded and installed the Developer Tools.

After I completed the installation I opened VS 2005 and went into a project that I created. However, the MySQLDirect tab is not in the toolbox and I can't find any of the controls. If I right click on the toolbox and click "choose items" all of the MySQL components are selected, even though they don't show up in the toolbox.

Please let me know what I can do to fix this as I can't procede in any development until I get this issue resolved and can add the data providers to my application.

Thanks!

Version 3.20 of MySQLDirect is not the latest. Please download one from our site and install it. If the problem persists try to browse to the assembly and choose components from it.

I downloaded the latest version (3.50) of MySQLDirect. I uninstalled the old version and then installed the new version.

When I opened VS 2005 for the first time after the new install there was a MySQLDirect tab in the tool box with no items in it. Then, when I opened an existing project the tab disappeared and there was nothing to do with MySQLDirect in the toolbox any longer.

When I selected "Choose Items" all of the MySQLDirect components were selected, even though they weren't in the toolbox. I tried unselecting them, closing VS 2005 and then opening it again and re-choosing them, but nothing was added to the toolbox.

Does anyone have any ideas how I can solve this? I really need to get this working ASAP.

The other things to note is that I have VS 2003 installed with the 1.1 framework Corelabs stuff also.

Thanks!

Try to select right assembly manually to choose .NET2 components from it.
