Sunday, September 04, 2011 1:38 PMHi, I have a couple of projects that I am working on with Oracle and mySQL. When I try to add the data sources I They are not visible in the datasources window, what's the trick to make these selection options available from the Add Data sources window?

Also keep in mind that the Change DS window breaks up data sources into 2 categories: providers and sources. You need to set the providers properly. For Oracle you can use .NET Framework Data Provider for SQL Server. I don't know about MySQL.

Thanks for your feedback.
You can run the Add Connection Wizard in Server Explorer.
Have a nice day.

Alan it isn't showing up. I installed the ODAC program and oracle server. Also MSSQL server compact 4.0 doesn't appear but that option is available in VS 2010 web developer.
IWhen i installed th odac fil for Oracle it was an install.bat run from the cmd line. So I am missing some steps somewhere.
Do any files need to be placed in a specific directory? If so what/where?
