Deployment - Project does not run on other machine

Post by tommwillis » Tue 13 Jan 2009 13:01

I am creating a web project in VS2008 using c# and a mysql database.

I am trying to run the project on another computer. I have included the Devart.Data.MySql.dll and Devart.Data.dll files in the bin folder of the project.

When i run the project i get the following error in the browser..

'Unable to find the requested .Net framework data provider. It may not be installed.

Any ideas why?

Our installation package registers dotConnect for MySQL in the , , , and sections of your computer's machine.config file (C:\WINDOWS\Microsoft.NET\Framework\v2.0.50727\CONFIG\machine.config ).

Please copy these registration settings from the machine.config file of your computer to the web.config file of your web application to enable running the project on another computer.

When deploying ASP.NET applications it is also necessary to have Devart.Data.MySql.Web.dll and App_Licenses.dll assemblies.

For more information, please refer to our online documentation: , the Deployment part.
