Pinned topic IBM DB2 VSAI (Visual Studio Addins) support for VS 2017

‏2017-04-10T18:38:36Z |

Hi,

 

We are a leading edge software development organization, and have upgraded to Visual Studio 2017.

 

However, we do not find VSAI (Visual Studio Addins) support for DB2 Connect.

 

Where to download update?

 

Thank you

    Will it be within the next couple of months?

    As I recall VS 2015 support took nearly 18 months to get. That is far too long.

    Unlike previous versions of VS, there are breaking changes for Visual Studio Addins by Microsoft in VS2017 and it is taking more time for us to provide the support. We are trying for a phased support but within next two months it may not happen. I will update you once we get better clarity on date of release.

    Hi,

     yes we have overcome some of the technical challenges we were facing and we are making good progress. If GA takes time, we may release beta soon. I can not still provide you a definite date of release as of now, but will update you as soon the release date is finalized.

     

    If you are in need of this support soon and waiting, please contact our customer support and we will explore if something interim can be provided for you.

     

    Thanks and regards

    Vishwa

    Does IBM not participate in the Microsoft beta partner program where by you can get releases of VS 2017 months ahead of release to work out the bugs so that you have timely releases?

    I'm unable to download the VSAI package for VS2017.

    First I went to https://www-01.ibm.com/support/docview.wss?uid=swg24044640 and clicked on the Windows button for "IBM Database Add-ins for Visual Studio".

     

    That took me to this page which claims "No fixes were found that address the specified value "*vsai*FP003*"."

    Hi,

     you need to have any of the older versions of Visual Studio be installed for this support to work. Please refer to link for more details:

    When will a version of VSAI for VS 2017 that doesn't require an older version of VS installed be available?  Any advice on what to do in the meantime?

    Why is it that IBM is the only company that can't figure out Visual Studio integration? I work with other databases and everything is basically seamless. With IBM you have to have multiple versions of Visual Studio installed or other weird configuration hacks just to get a partially working implementation?

    Hi,

    I just started development using IBM db2 for iSeries in visual studio 2017 in net core. My application is throwing an error when trying to connect to db2 for as400 database.

    Not sure if it is compatible.

    I read the instructions above to download the add in, which I did, but did not help.

    Please if you could provide step by step instructions and screenshots that would be very helpful in development.

     

    Thanks
