I'm using Visual Studio 2010 Ultimate Edition with Connector/Net 6.3.3.
I'm trying to let Visual Studio generate a model .edmx file but I get this error just after I hit the "Update model from database" button 

Unable to generate the model because of the following exception: 'An error occurred while executing the command definition. See the inner exception for details.
	The SELECT would examine more than MAX_JOIN_SIZE rows; check your WHERE and use SET SQL_BIG_SELECTS=1 or SET SQL_MAX_JOIN_SIZE=# if the SELECT is okay

How to repeat:
Just open visual Studio, try to use a database Mysql remotely (i.e. installed on another server), add the reference as you would do with a normal program that would connect to a db and voila'.... the error will come...

Suggested fix:
I don't know.

Please, connect to the same MySQL server with mysql command line tool (or any other tool that allows to execute SQL) and get the results of:

show variables like '%max_join%';
show variables like 'sql_big%';
