I don't think you can see the provider here in the list.

if you want to use the MySQL provider in the .NET applicaiton, follow the below steps.

1. Create a folder in your applicaiton and add the MySql DLL to that folder.
2. Right click on the References
3. Click Add Reference
4. Browse the MySql dll from that folder and click ok.

You are ready to use the MySQL data provider in your application.

using(MySqlConnection con = new MySqlConnection())
  // code goes here


Open in new window
