I have downloaded dotConnect for MySQL and placed the relevant dlls in my bin directory.

Please replace

Code: Select all

providerName="dotConnect for MySQL"

Code: Select all

in the connectionStrings and providerMappings sections of your *.config. An example of our provider registration is available at %ProgramFiles%\Devart\dotConnect\MySQL\Enterprise Library\NET3.5\DataAccessQuickStart\CS\App.config.

Notify us about the results.
