With new version of Visual Studio 2017 v15.6.6
there is huge problem: generator of adapters doesn't work


Work with new and old projects using MySQL integration is imposible!

How to repeat:
create new WinForm project, Create new data set, Define new connection to mysql server and try add new tableadapter to dataset finish with error:
Object reference not set to an instance of an object.

like on screen:

Hello Bartosz Nowicki,

Thank you for the bug report.
Verified this behavior on Visual Studio 2017 (C#.Net) and Connector/NET 6.10.6 version.

I get the same error with the same screen shots.

Visual Studio 2017 Pro 15.7.5
MySQL for Visual Studio 2017 Version 2.0.5
MySQL Connector .Net 8.0.11

I've used the MySQL Installer and tried installing manually, neither work. I also tried .Net connector version 6.9.12. Project is c# .Net 4.6.2.

Posted by developer:
Fixed as of the upcoming MySQL for Visual Studio 1.2.9 release, and here's the changelog entry:

The TableAdapter Configuration Wizard in Visual Studio configured with a
valid MySQL connection produced an error, instead of generating the
expected TableAdapter. Now, the error condition is resolved when MySQL
Connector/NET 6.10.8 (or higher) or MySQL Connector/NET 8.0.14 (or higher)
are available for use by MySQL for Visual Studio.

Thank you for the bug report.
