Just upgraded from VS2010 to VS2012 Professional version.
In previous VS's (2010,2008,2005) I had no issues with this but in VS2012 under
Tools > Connect to Database > Datasource my IBM provider is not showing up to select.
"IBM DB2 for i5/OS .NET Provider"
I've done some extensive googleing but not finding an answer that seems
to work for me in VS2012. Similar to this one:
I've looked at the machine.config file from the link above, and
it is in there and correct.
The object browser shows the IBM provider properly and my project(s)
references show the DLL and coding with it has no errors.
I simply cannot choose it now as a DB provider. It is installed correctly, no errors.
Any idea on how to get this to show up so I can select it?
The provider supports .NET framwork 4.0 but not EF(LINQ).
