Provider not shown (dotConnect for Postgres)

Post by andreventu » Tue 21 Sep 2010 17:58


I have installed the dotConnect for Postgres and, when I will use the EF, the provider is not shown to connect. The assemblies were registered successfully in GAC and the key was added in machine.config.

What might be wrong?

Please give us the following information:
1) the version and edition of your dotConnect for PostgreSQL (the Tools > PostgreSQL > About menu of Visual Studio). Note that the Entity Framework support is available only in Professional Edition: ... tions.html.
2) the version and edition of your Visual Studio (the Help > About menu).
3) the exact form where dotConnect for PostgreSQL is not shown. Are you using Entity Developer (right click on Project in Solution Explorer > Add > New Item > Devart Entity Framework Model) or Visual Studio Entity Data Model Wizard (right click on Project > Add > New Item > ADO.NET Entity Data Model)?
