C# and MySQL

I would like to use MySQL in my app. How would I do that? - (a MySQL database is not listed in the database connections). Also, how do I create a mySQL database? Please help. Many thanks.

  • If you are using Framework 1.1 you can use the classes inside of the System.Data.Odbc namespace. If you are using framework 1.0 you should be able to use the classes inside of the System.Data.Oledb.

    May I ask why you wish to use a MySQL db and not MSSQL?

  • MySQL is free, - I can't afford SQL Server. Is MS SQL free? Also, do you know how to create a MySQL DB? Please help. Many thanks.
  • I am very familar with MySQL but I really think you should look into MSDE.
