Failed to add relation(s) Unexpected error


  • I am getting the following error message when using the Data Source Configuration Wizard in Visual Studio 2008 to create a connection to a MySQL database.

    Failed to add relation(s) Unexpected error.

    I have found a KB article (KB954740) on the problem, but can not seem to find the fix.
    I have just started using Visual Studio but I am knowledgeable with VB from many years of work in Microsoft Access.

    Thanks in advance for any help you may provide,
