Hi Shun

Take a look on the mysql.com website as they have released a mySQL
connector specifically for .Net 2 (which I've briefly used with no
problems) - if you search on their site for Connector.Net you should
find it quite easily.

Cheers
Martin

Hi,

I am using MySQL in VS2005 (not with VB.net but with Chrome, but that does
not make any difference) and it works fine...
You can download an ADO.net connector here :

Here is a tutorial about using MySQL in VB.net :
