Getting started with mySQL Connector/Net 5.1

i have a vs2005 project which someone else built. 

I need to connect to mySQL in this project.

it is currently using the OleDbConnection to mySQL and I cannot make the connection, so I was told by the developer to try the

the mySQL Connector/Net 5.1.  I have read the very encouraging documentation.

 I am in a file called SqlDataProvider.vb

I want to replace Dim objConnection As OleDbConnection
Dim objConnection As MySqlConnection

I get the blue squiggly  "MySqlConncection is undefined."

I added this import to the top.

Imports MySql.Data.MySqlClient

this line shows up with a green squiggly stating:  does't contain any public member and cannot be found.  Make sure the namespace or the type is defined and contains at least one public member.  Make sure the imported element doesn't use any alias'

if found this old post
that told me to

"First of all, make sure that you have the connector file MySql.Data.dll in:
Then, MySql.Data.dll must be added as a reference in your project:
(website -> Add Reference -> .NET -> locate the file MySql.Data.dll -> ok)

I did this but it did not help and the .dll are not in my websites bin directory.

I have built the project.

I down to the wire on this project, so your help is greatly appreciated!

this is on my localhost, once I get it working here I will need to get it working on the live server.

Will my ISP need to install the conncetor/Net5.1 on the web server?

All what you have to do after installing mysql connector is to add the reference for the DLL file found here

C:\Program Files\MySQL\MySQL Connector Net 1.x.x\bin 


You will be able to use the whole assembly after that

thanks for your weekend reply!  wow.

I did not mention this is in the DotNetNuke source developement version.

 I am trying to customize a module.  I do not think that should matter   ?

  I tried right clicking on the solution, the website and the bin folder to add the as a reference and it never put it in the bin folder.  the screen just blips.  I build and rebuild the solution with no errors and still I do not see a the dll

I did notice it writes a reference to it in the web.config file.

<add assembly="MySql.Data, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=C5687FC88969C44D"/>
add assembly="MySql.Web, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=C5687FC88969C44D"/>

I added the mysql.web but I think i should delete it.

so I physically copied the dll from the path you gave (except my path said binaries/dotnet2.0)

rebuilt the site and I am still getting the blue squiggly like I mentioned in the beginning post.


Dim objConnection As MySqlConnection

the shift alt + f10 lists four other options to connect to  like odbc, sqlclient, sql and idb.

I did manage to add the mySQL server to the Server Explorer sucessfully. That functionality comes with the Net connector.
