I’m currently working on a project using the latest and greatest (perhaps not?) Visual Studio 2011 Beta with mysql. It’s quite a painful task at the moment as i’m using the Entity Framework as my ORM. However, for all of you who want to get the MySqlConnector working with Visual Studio 2011 Beta, then I suggest you visit this page. It’s in a different language so make sure you have your favorite language translator ready. It’s a good start, but it still doesn’t integrate into the Entity Framework section so you cannot generate models etc from mysql databases in VS 2011 Beta. At the moment I’m using the Code First approach with an existing mysql database and using the Fluent API to map the fields together, what a task!
