Is MySQL Entity supported in Visual Studio Ultimate 2012 RC?

entity-framework mysql visual-studio-2012

Question

I installed MySQL connector for .Net v6.5 and it is supported by Entity Framework. When I use Visual Studio 2012 and try to add an ADO.NET Entity Data Model, I can't see MySQL. There are just Microsoft SQL Servers. It worked in VS 2010.

This question said that they are working on it - is there a conclusion?

Accepted Answer

The connector .NET v6.5.4 available today does not support VS 2012. You can't add a connection to MySQL in the Server Explorer to begin with.

Support will be included in 6.5.5 as per post: MySQL forum

There is apparently some workarounds and 3rd party ways to get this working but personally I will just wait.
