Can't make new MSSQL database connection anymore

Can't make new MSSQL database connection anymore

Postby dghundt » Sat 16 Sep 2006 21:22

Before I installed the corelab mysql direct.net data provider, I could establish new database connections in visual studio 2005 standard edition. I could use odbc, or mssql just fine previously.

I installed core lab for mysql a few weeks ago, which I think works great, but now I cannot establish new database connections. Here is what I do in visual studio 2005. At the tool strip I select:

Data, Add new data source, Database, next, New Connection.

The error I get is:
An unexpected error occured in the mysqldirect.net data provider. please contact the vendor to resolve this problem.

Why can I not establish ANY database connections via this method? It appears I can only go through corelab utilities now.

I see older posts from April discussing this is a known issue with Corelab, but this has not been fixed yet? I do not want to upgrade to visual studio professional edition to overcome a bug in corelab.

I appreciate your comments and help with this.

This problem is going to be resolved very soon.
To make other providers work try to uninstall MySQLDirect.

THank you Alexey for looking into this. I think you have developed a great product here. Unfortunately, I can't uninstall mysqldirect, as this is needed for the program to run.

We are going to issue a new build in a couple of days.
Thanks for your patience.

I am still getting the same error....

I uninstalled MySqlDirect.net from the start menu
I logged on to your server and installed mysqldirect.net version 3.50.13.0
I removed the reference to corelab.mysql
I then added the reference corelab.mysql 3.50.13.0, but none of the other references.
I ran my application and it worked.

But I still cannot make a new connection in the Data Source Configuration Wizard. I get the same error as before. Please tell me what you did to get this working on your test system.

Try to run "devenv /resetskippkgs" from the command line.

Thank you for your reply.
I am not sure where to place this command properly.

Do you mean open up a dos command window (shell), and type that command at the prompt without changing to another directory?

Or click on Start, run, and enter it there.

Yes, click on Start, run, and enter it there.
Don't forget to close all your Visual Studio instances before.
