On my development PC I'm trying to get the .net connector working but for some reason its not recognized by vs2015..

The strange thing is on my home pc its working file. I Also can't find a reference in the machine config.

What did I test?:

- Reinstalled vs2015
- Reinstall Mysql

How to repeat:
Install Latest mysql .net connector for vs 2015

The connector is also not showing under Installed products in vs2015. Even tough the mysql installer shows all required add-ins(connector/.net and MySQL for Visual Studio) are installed.

Something to add: I have installed vs2015 on my SSD. So its not installed on the default install location. Not sure if that could cause the problem

Hello Florian Schaal,

Thank you for the bug report.
I could not repeat the issue on Visual Studio 2015 with Connector/Net 6.9.8 and MySQL for Visual Studio 1.2.5.

Could you please try below steps and let us know the status:
1. Uninstall the MySQL for VS 
2. Download the product installer(.msi) of version 1.2.5.
   (Download from here: http://dev.mysql.com/downloads/windows/visualstudio/1.2.html)
3. install the product
4. check if that way it work
5. let us confirm SSD is an external one or not.

I'm not sure how but now it's showing in visual studio. I have to note that I started today with a fresh install of vs2015. What I have done differently from the past reinstalls is that I now deleted all remaining content of vs2015 with the following command:

vs_professional_ENU.exe /uninstall /force

This might have deleted some conflicting files and how it's working again.

Anyway thanks for the help and time. I hope this can help some other ppl facing this problem.

Kind regards,
