    Question MySql and Vb.Net 2008

    Good afternoon all,

    I'm brand new to using MySql. Can anyone tell me what .dll file I have to add as a reference to import MySql into application?

    Currently Imports MySql.Data.MySqlClient does not work, I'm missing a dll i'm sure. Any Ideas?

    Thanks all!

    What error do you get when you try the import.

    I tried the import and got this

    Interesting that it wasn't an actual error...just a warning.

    Have a look at the "MySQL Connector/Net — for connecting to MySQL from .NET" section from this MySQL Downloads link. Do you have all of that stuff?
