I just downloaded the Microsoft DataAccess Application to get a feel for what the Microsoft.ApplicationBlocks.Data.dll can offer.  When examining the code included with the download there are specific instructions for setting up a reference to the above dll.  The problem is that I cannot find the dll on my system.  

Is the Dll supposed to be included in the download of the Microsoft DataAccess Application?  If not can someone tell me where I can get the dll?

Thank you.

C:\Program Files\Microsoft Application Blocks for .NET\Data Access v2\Code\CS\Microsoft.ApplicationBlocks.Data\bin\Debug

If you installed the above (or rebuild it to go to a release bin)...

I actually liked to add the class directly to my code and use that instead of another assembly.

  No.

  You need to compile the assembly - there will be a solution file that you can open in Visual Studio/

Alex,

I downloaded both links but still no dll.

glasc,

No luck on the path you indicated either.  After the install should I do a build to generate the dll?  Maybe that's the problem, I have only examined the code through explorer, I have actually opened the project and done a build.

Also,  can you use this on a Win2003 environment?

Thank you for your comments.

eternal 21,

Can this dll be used in a web app?  All references to documentation I am finding on the dll seem to be demonstrating use from a windows form.

Thank you for your thoughts.

TMF123, Sorry I just saw your last post.

  Yes this DLL can be used in a web app; there is nothing special about the Application Block that would prevent that use.  What I don't know is if it can be used on the Compact Framework (Smart Devices), but it can definitely be used in any other .NET/C# applications.
