I just installed the LinqToSQL for the first time. I am using a .NET 4.7.2 Forms application as a test. When I use the Add New Item wizard to add a model, after completing the add wizard screens, I get the following error message when the model is generated:

The reference Devart.Data could not be added to the project. The wizard will continue to run, but the resulting project may not build properly.

The only reference I get is Devart.Data.Linq. I don't see a Devart.Data reference when I search references.

I can view and work with the models. I manually added the Devart.Data.SqlServer.Linq just in case (we use SqlServer). And the project will build and run.

We cannot reproduce the error with LinqConnect v4.9.2203 when only SQL Server was selected in Setup Wizard.

After selecting Devart LinqConnect Model via Add New Item menu, the following references are added to the project:
* C:\Program Files (x86)\Common Files\Devart\dotConnect\NET2\Devart.Data.dll
* C:\Program Files (x86)\Common Files\Devart\dotConnect\NET2\Devart.Data.Linq.dll
* C:\Program Files (x86)\Common Files\Devart\dotConnect\NET2\Devart.Data.SqlServer.Linq.dll

This file is not present: C:\Program Files (x86)\Common Files\Devart\dotConnect\NET2\Devart.Data.dll
The others are.

Maybe I'll try installing a previous version.

I downloaded the trial and installed that. That DID create the file!

The install version from my account has the std suffix.

Also, the install version from my account does not give a choice of providers, it is grayed out with SQLServer Provider prechecked.

Support told me that the standard edition doesn't use Devart.Data.dll and an update will be made.

I've been working this product for a bit and it's a nice replacement for LINQ to SQL.
