I have a sepparated dll where i offer a service for connection to the entity framework context.
There is a correct license file.

But when i deploy (and i included & it says:

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

the same effect is when i cange the provider part in the connectionstring. could you tell me what i have to do, so that endusers doesnt have to install the connector sepparately (cause they dont have admin-rights...)?
