Data Source COnfiguration Wizard issue when building for x64 platform


  • Hi,

    Visual 2015 Enterprise Update 2 (also tried Update 3 with same result) has an issue when targetting x64 platform and you want to add an "Object Data Source" to a project.

    When you get to the "Select the Data Objects" wizard page, no object is listed in the tree view:

    Looking for confirmation from other users before opening a tech support issue with MS.

    Steps to reproduce:

    1. Create a new Class Library project (under the Visual C#\Windows\Classic desktop category)
    2. A "Class1.cs" file is created automatically for you
    3. Add a public property to Class1
    4. Set the platform to x64 in the project properties
    5. Launch the Data Source Wizard, and select "Object" as the data source type
    6. The "Select the Data Objects" tree view will be empty

    Thanks for any feedback/possible solution

    Luc Morin, T.P.
