Problem with setup in VS 2015

Daniel Rail
Hi all,

I was able to connect in VS2015 and create some classes to represent a
few tables(from an existing database) by using the "ADO.Net Entity
Model" template, by using the "Code First from Database".

But, something happened(and I don't know what) that now I can't get
the Firebird ADO.Net driver to show up in the connection dialog for
the "ADO.Net Entity Model" template or even to add connections in the
VS2015 Server Explorer. I reinstalled the Firebird DDEX(3.0.2), and
even ran the .reg files manually, and the Firebird ADO.Net(5.8.0.0)
driver but no success. I even checked machine.config and all the
entries are there.  In the project, the Firebird drivers are added via
NuGet.

Also,  this  is on the latest version of Windows 10 and VS2015 is up to
date.

Is there anything else that I need to look at?  If more information is
needed, let me know.

Check whether the registry entries are there (for VS2015).

That was the problem.  I did double-click on the .reg file and Windows
told  me  that the entries were added, but they were not.  I just used
the Import function inside RegEdit, and that worked.

Also,  what  is  the  timeline  to support VS 2017?  I tried by simply
changing  the  registry  keys  from  14_Config  to 15_Config, but that
simply  created  a  15_Config  registry  key  that  only contained the
registry keys for Firebird, and nothing else.  It looks like that they
have changed how the integration works.

I  can add the VS2017 support request to the tracker, just let me know
under which component(s) that would be appropriate.

Hi,

I was able to get Firebird to show up in the provider list by copying an <entityframework> setting to my app.config file. I found that setting somewhere on the web. But that didn't wok either. Whenever I type anything into an input field, the dialog disappears. Very frustrating.

Known mistake. Your machine config entry and GAC does not match.

Great. Something I don't want to hear. :) Hopefully it's just the
registry keys, not the whole DDEX story. Although I wouldn't mind fresh
API for that, preferably fully managed.

It' already there under DNET-739.

I  added a comment to DNET-739 with a link to the breaking changes in VS 2017
with  regards to the integration and the registry keys.  It looks like
that  the  best  approach  would be to use the VSIX package installer,
possibly using the External Settings Manager.
