MySql Connector .NET and the DbProviderFactory

Hi there...

I have downloaded the MySql Connector .NET form .

My connectionstring uses the MySql.Data.MySqlClient provider.

When i use the DbProviderFactiry to create connections, readers and so on, it comes up with and error, saying that the provider has not been installed proberly...

What is the proper way?

If i don't use the DbProviderFactiry, and use the MySql Connector .NET like this:

            MySqlDataReader reader = null;

                string strConn = ConfigurationManager.ConnectionStrings[connectionStringName].ConnectionString;
                string strProvider = ConfigurationManager.ConnectionStrings[connectionStringName].ProviderName;
                MySqlConnection myConn = new MySqlConnection(strConn);

                MySqlCommand cmd = new MySqlCommand(selectStatement, myConn);

                reader = cmd.ExecuteReader(CommandBehavior.CloseConnection);
            catch (Exception Ex)
                throw new Exception(Ex.Message, Ex);


            return reader;


I get the following error:

Type 'MySql.Data.Types.MySqlConversionException' in assembly 'MySql.Data, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=c5687fc88969c44d' is not marked as serializable.

What could be the issue here?

I use something like this in my webconfig :

    <add name="conn_Name" connectionString="Your_Connection_String;"
         providerName="MySQL.Data.MySQLClient" />

      <add name="MySQL Data Provider" invariant="MySQL.Data.MySQLClient" type="MySQL.Data.MySQLClient.MySqlClientFactory, ..."/>

---> and place the MySQL driver in the .bin directory.

I get no exception errors.
Hope that helps, if it does maybe, you can help me as I progess through
my understanding of .NET 2.0. I have a prob I'm still stuck on  see:

MySql Connector .NET 2.0 DbProviderFactories
Hi, can anyone post a definitive article on how to set up a MySQL v5.x DbProviderFactory for ASP.NET 2.0? What machine.config/web.config sections are required?

Once a factory is created does the VS2005 design view then let you define SqlDataSource settings using this new factory via the wizards? If this isn't possible, what are the alternative methods of talking to MySQL? Cheers. you just need to download mysql connector and reference in yo...

how "register" MySQL .net connector?
Hi there! I'm trying to use the MySQL .net connector to connect to a MySQL database, however, the line: <%@ Import Namespace="MySql.Data.MySqlClient" %> fails: The type or namespace name 'MySql' could not be found (are you missing a using directive or an assembly reference?) I guess I have to register the connector with the .NET environment in some way, but how do I do that? You dont need to register it simply place it in your application /bin/ directory and it will be automatically compiled at runtime. You can ftp it into your web domain etc th...
