SQL Anywhere 16 error in Visual Studio 2015 RRS feed

  • User-584405656 posted

    In Visual Studio 2015 I try to go to Tools->Connect to Database and get the following error message:

    "An expected error occurred in the .NET Framework Data Provider for SQL Anywhere 16. Please contact the provider vendor to resolve this problem."

    I installed iAnywhere.Data.SQLAnywhere.v.4.5 and this did not resolve the issue. Does anyone know what is required here? 

    Thanks

    Ran the repair on the VIsual Studio 2015. This appears to have resolved the issue.

    SQL Anywhere 16 is a SAP product.  See SAP support for assistance.

    Thanks but I don't actually need to connect to a SAP database. This is why I'm baffled as to why Visual Studio keeps giving this error. I installed SQL Anywhere 16  to see if it would stop the errors. I do have SAP Business Objects BI tools installed. We use Business Objects BI 4.2 for report writing. I need to connect to a SQL server database.

    Maybe there is some software conflict going on.  At this point I'm running a repair on my VS 2015 install.
