Pinned topic Announcing Beta for Visual Studio 2012 RC Support

‏2012-08-08T19:18:33Z |
I am very pleased to announce our open beta for Visual Studio 2012 RC. Before you jump to the download link, please review this information.

This beta has been tested with Visual Studio 2012 RC only - once the final Visual Studio 2012 release is available, we will indicate if it can continue to operate or not.

This beta does prereq a certain level of our drivers - you must be on V9.7 FP6 in order to use this beta. The beta only updates the Visual Studio Addins to add VS 2012 RC support, the DB2 .NET data provider is not modified.

This beta does not have any support for the IBM.Data.Informix provider - that has been deprecated and will not be enhanced further - The IBM.Data.DB2 provider fully supports Informix servers.

Installation of this beta will upgrade the V9.7 FP6 Visual Studio Addins (if installed) to add VS 2012 RC support. In doing so, any Visual Studio 2008, 2010 support will remain, however any saved connections will be removed. This is only an artifact of the beta, our full support will not have that issue.

This beta is supported with any of our client packages. The best practice is installation of the IBM Data Server Driver Package (ds driver) and then the Visual Studio Addins on top of that, as detailed here

This beta will work with the Data Server Runtime Client, the Data Server Client, or and DB2 LUW Server package - as long as it is at V9.7 FP6. Please note that the V9.7 FP6 limitation is only for the driver prereq - connectivity continues to be provided to any DB2 or Informix server supported by V9.7 FP6.

The beta is only supported via this forum - if you do have an issue, please create a thread here and one of the followers of this forum should be able to assist.
Thanks for reviewing the above - here is the beta download link

    Re: Announcing Beta for Visual Studio 2012 RC Support

    I would like to thank everyone for their participation in our beta. We have just released V10.1 FP2 of our drivers, which contains formal support for VS 2012 and .NET FW 4.5. As a result, this beta is no longer active.
