Linking MySQL datasource to Visual Studio 2012
Posted on 2013-01-21
A simple question, but I can't seem to find anything useful on google.
I am struggling to create a connection to a MySQL db using visual studio web express 2012.
I found one answer on yahoo saying it was not to be added until 5.5.6.
Now I'm running MySQL server 5.5
and have the Net connector 6.1.6 installed on my machine.
I have added the reference to the MySQL.Data to the site, but when I go to
Database Explorer -> New Connection -> Select other data source and look at the dropdown MySQL is not appearing?
ANything I am doing wrong here?
