Unable to add MS Access data connection in Visual Studio 2010 Express RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have created a mdb database and a table within that Access database.

    I am now attempting to add a data connection to the above database from Visual Studio 2010 Express and receive the following error message:

    "Unable to add data connection. The given key was not present in the dictionary."

    This is a completely uninformative and unhelpful error message.

    Could someone please shed some light on what is going on? Particularly, do I have a MS Access problem (I doubt it) or a Visual Studio problem.

    I have resorted to MS Access as my "preferred" database as I have spent far too much time trying to coax MS SQL Server CE into life without success.
