Description:
I installed MySQL OK.
I created empty MySQL database in Windows Azure OK.
I connected to MySQL db in Windows Azure using Visual Studio 2017. OK.
I tried to Create Table in MySQL db and got "Cannot create dein window for selected object" error message.
Why?
How do I Create Table in VS2017?

How to repeat:
Install MySQL.
Create empty MySQL database in Windows Azure.
Connect to MySQL db in windows Azure in VS2017 and test connection.
Try to Create Table in MySQL db using VS2017.

Suggested fix:
Create Table in VS2017 should function properly without error.

Severity Level should be higher.

Showstopper.
Critical.
I will be forced to drop MySQL in my project and use Microsoft SQL Sever if it cannot be fixed soon.

Why did it take so long to respond?
This is not a way to support developers.

This bug has been there since connector 6.9.9

Unbelievable it's still broken in 8.0.11

Same steps with local server on Win 7 x64:
In VS2017 Server Explorer right click on Data Connections, select Add Connection, MySql, enter credentials, select database, Save. Then expand tables, double click on any table - you got the error.

Yeah I'm having this problem too.

This really seems like something they would have noticed... you know... at some point in the last two years.
