Description:

The  GetDbProviderManifestToken has been changed in 6.3.7

The following line cause an exception when the culture is not set to US

double num = double.Parse(connection.ServerVersion.Substring(0, 3));

The problem is that culture cr-CA use a "," instead of "." to separate decimals.

How to repeat:

Run any web app and add this to web.config

 <globalization requestEncoding="utf-8" responseEncoding="utf-8" culture="fr-CA" uiCulture="fr-CA"  />
    

Suggested fix:
Please use a Parse method version who use a fix format.

Should be

double num = double.Parse(connection.ServerVersion.Substring(0, 3), CultureInfo.InvariantCulture.NumberFormat);
