I've just encountered a wierd problem.
The following piece of code (using VS2010) works
SNAG-0028.bmpand, on the same PC, the following piece of code (using VS2015) fails
SNAG-0029.bmp
Any ideas as to what is going on - I just copied and pasted the file from one project to a newer one.

Yes it is the VS 2015. If you Prefix @ before Provider keyword in the connection string then it will work.

I've tried it and it doesn't make any difference.

Meanwhile I have found it is an x86 / x64 conflict.  Changing the solution property settings cured it.

32/64 bit compilation problem, only one of those options had the provider installed.
