I need to get started building a .NET application
that connects to a MySQL database.

Neither of WebMatrix or VB Express 2005 seem to offer
a way to connect to MySQL.

What .NET development environment do I need for this requirement ?

    Thanks, I downloaded this software.

    Are there any other system requirements
    to establish a connection in VB.NET to MySQL,
    other than calling: MySQLConnection( )  ?
