LINQ to Entities apps are being deployed.

c# entity-framework linq-to-entities mysql winforms

Question

I want to use L2E since it's very convenient to my company's apps, I created a demo project, the demo does run on every machine but when I, let's say, press a button that has some code that uses the entity I get this error:

specified store provider cannot be found in the configuration, or is not valid.

note that I get this error only on machines that does not have VS2008 installed, on these machines (the ones with VS2008) the demo works well. any advice is appreciated.

I am using MySql server with Mysql Conector 6.3 and the model is created with ADO.Net entitiy model.

EDIT

here is the complete error trace:

See the end of this message for details on invoking 
just-in-time (JIT) debugging instead of this dialog box.

************** JIT Debugging **************
To enable just-in-time (JIT) debugging, the .config file for this
application or computer (machine.config) must have the
jitDebugging value set in the system.windows.forms section.
The application must also be compiled with debugging
enabled.

For example:

<configuration>
    <system.windows.forms jitDebugging="true" />
</configuration>

When JIT debugging is enabled, any unhandled exception
will be sent to the JIT debugger registered on the computer
rather than be handled by this dialog box.

Accepted Answer

Check your app.config file the entity model connection has to point to the right server, the server must be accessible (i.e. your security settings have to be correct and your network set up right). We need more information about your environment. Right now I can only assume you don't know how to connect to a server from your Windows application.

Update: Does this solve your problem? http://www.devart.com/forums/viewtopic.php?t=13286

I had the same experience as Markus. I had to resort to installing the MySQL Connector on the production machine to get things to work. It worked fine. Same configuration file.

Before resorting to installing the MySQL Connector I tried adding to the bin: MySql.Data.dll, MySql.Data.Entity.dll, MySql.Web.dll, System.Data.Entity.dll. That didn't work for me.

My configuration prodution machine: MySQL Connector Net 6.3.7 and using .NET 4.0 framework My dev machine: MySQL Connector Net 6.3.7 and using .NET 4.0 framework, Visual Studio 2010
