Devart.Data listed twice...

Devart.Data listed twice...

Postby dsaracini » Mon 16 Mar 2009 21:26


When I go to "Add Reference" I can see Devart.Data listed twice... The two locations (and other info) is as follows:

Runtime: v2.0.50727
Path: c:\program files(x86)\Common Files\Devart\dotConnect\5.00\Net2\Devart.Data.dll

Runtime: v2.0.50727
Path: c:\program files(x86)\Devart\dotConnect\PostgreSQL\Devart.Data.dll

Is this a problem? Which should should I add when need to reference? Does it not make a difference?

Note: none of the other devart libraries are duplicated. Only Devart.Data.

It is ok. The Devart.Data.dll assembly from the Common Files folder is used during loading the Visual Studio packages. The reason of its separate location: several Devart providers can be installed on the same machine, but the Visual Studio packages have to use only one Devart.Data.dll. I recommend you to use the reference to the assembly from the \program files(x86)\Devart\dotConnect\PostgreSQL\ folder, but it doesn't make difference if you have installed compatible versions of Devart products.
