connecting windows store application application to localhost

    Question

  • I'm trying to connect my windows store application to mysql database hosted on localhost. Data Connection is successful but I can't resolve Mysqlconnection function. I tried to add mysql.data reference but it didn't appear in the options. I tried adding MySql.Data.MySqlClient namespace but it didn't resolve. I have installed mysql visual studio plugin 1.1.1.

    P.S I'm not sure if I chose the right forum category.

  • Hi Aiman,

    SQLite is suggested in Windows Store App but I don't think MySQL is supported.

    Furthermore you can not connect to localhost in Windows Store App.
