Cannot get Devart working in DataExplorer

Post by rwerning » Wed 25 Aug 2010 15:22

I'm trying to set up a connection in the Data Explorer for Rad Studio 2010, on a Windows 7 machine (64 bit).

I can use the devart drivers (Oracle & Sql Server) during run time without a problem, but can't get it working during design time in the IDE.

I configured a connection in Data Explorer, everything should be ok. But when I "Test Connection" I got the following error:

System.IO.FileNotFoundException: Could not load file or assembly 'Devart.DbxOda.DriverLoader, Version=1.0.0.5001, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=09af7300eec23701' or one of its dependencies. The system cannot find the file specified.

After some research and thinking about it, I figured it couldn't find the Devart.DbxOda.DriverLoader.dll so I copied that into the C:\Windows\SysWOW64 folder.

That resolved the first error, but now I get a new one:

Borland.Data.EClassRegistryError: Devart.DbxOda.DriverLoader.TCRDynalinkDriverLoader class cannot be found in Devart.DbxOda.DriverLoader,Version=1.0.0.5001,Culture=neutral,PublicKeyToken=09af7300eec23701

So clearly something isn't configured correctly, maybe a problem with the install? Any suggestions on how to get the driver working correctly?

Thanks,
Rich Werning

I should have mentioned, this same error happens when I try to use the Sql Server drivers. I am using the latest version of each of them.. Oracle 4.50.21 and SqlServer 4.55.23

Just found this post.. is this still true with the latest version of Devart dbExpress drivers and D2010?

Hello,

Data Explorer in RAD Studio 2010 is a .Net application as it is in RAD Studio 2009, and DbxXXX drivers don't support .NET for RAD Studio 2009 and 2010 for the time being, but we plan to add such support in one of the new versions.
