Creating my first project in Visual Studio 2005 and having problems setting up a Data Connection to our Postgres SQL database. Originaly I tried to use the ODBC DSN that I have bee using to date for my Access applicaitons, but the table names are not displaying.

It was suggested to use Npgsql by pgFoundry (.NET). The directions call to place the npgsql dll into the project folder. But I do not see any options in the ADD COnnection wizard to pick a native .net driver for Postgres. I just see the option for ODBC and OLE-DB, which also fails.

Anyone using VS2005 against the Postrges SQL server with the native postgress .net driver?
