In Visual Web Developer-2010, I have been trying to connect to IBM DB2 Database after installing the DB2 9.7 client (both supports VS2010/.Net4) so that I can use "ADO.NET Entity Data Model", but while clicking "New Connection" I can only see the list of Data Sources and Data Provider only related to MS SQL server. This is totally blocking my work, I am not able to work further since I cannot even establish the connection to my db2 database using this new editor so that I can create the edmx files in the solution for non MSSQL databases. Kindly provide me the solution ASAP, since my further work is blocking due to this.

Have just loaded VWD 2010 and tried to create an SQL DB, the following error occurs "Failed to generate a user instance of SQL Server due to a failure in starting the process for the user interface. The connection will be closed."
I've wrote the comprehensive post within my blog: [URL] In brief words everything is simple:
1. I've downloaded free Visual Studio C# 2010 Express and Visual Studio Web Developer 2010 Express 2. I've successfully installed these versions. 3. I've tried registration online - and got the appropriate keys which I've used for registration.
Finally all the keys I've got are not valid for the system - and after 30 days evaluation (for free version?) period all these products are not running anymore because all the keys I am providing from online registration are invalid.
I have an old mysql database, version - 3.23.38. I'd like to migrate from this database to ms sql express 2005. When reading through about MySQL Migration Toolkit, I found this fact - it is designed to work with MySQL versions 5.0 and higher. So, which toolkit could do for mysql version 3.23.38? Or let me know how to migrate it.
In Visual Web Developer 2008, creating new sqldatasource connection, I not find ".NET Framework Data Provider for MySQL". I have already installed MySQL Connector/Net 6.2. I could add a reference to MySql.Data. Why!
I am working on Creating a Web Application with Web Forms using Visual C# express 2010 edition. While I create a project I do not see an option to create "ASP.NET Web application". Is there any plug-in I need to Install?
I've been using VS2010 to look at the new ASP.NET and specifically MVC 2. I have gone through the 0.8 release of the MvcMusicStore sample on CodeProject (good job so far).
Now, I'm working on a project to explore MVC more deeply and after creating a table in a local SQL table, I went to create an ADO.NET entity data model to work with the table data. When I get to the list of templates, the total list of templates are:
SQL Server Database Text File XML File XML Schema That's everything (meaning when C# is selected at the top of the dialog's installed templates).
I've re-installed VS2010 (gone through the control panel and the maintenance option for VS2010). There's no Linq, Data Set, Database Unit Test, nothing....
It was there before, it's not now.
UPDATE : I did find this article: [URL] I did run devenv /installvstemplates. It ran without errors, however, the error still persists.
The article said if the "solution" was not a real solution, to re-install VS2010 (Really???). So I went to do so. The ADO.NET entity object framework is installed.

I'm totally new to ASP.NET ( as a VC++ 6.0 engineer ), I have just downloaded the express edition of 2010 web developer and cannot find for the life of me the correct project template to create an ASP.NET webservice.. in 2008 it appears there is an option for this .. however I cannot find it in 2010..
just a quick question, are there a lot of developers using the express edition to make web sites, or is it limited to what you can do, and I would be better getting the full edition visual studio 2010. I have been using dreamweaver, but I wanted to try my hand at asp.net, thx for any info you can offer.
I have a form that I'm working on in Visual Web Developer 2010 Express. I have a dropdown list to choose a data from the database. I want to use the chosen list item to populate a GridView object. This seems like it should be a simple thing to do.I have a data connection which uses a fixed SQL statement to populate the dropdown list and that works fine. I can select an item on the list and retrieve the correct information for the next query (namely an ID value for the next SQL statement).I have the data connection with another SQL statement to populate the gridview and that works fine. The gridview is currently just showing the entire dataset (it doesn't use the item that was selected in the dropdown list.Now I want to change the gridview's data connection to use the selected item in the dropdown list as a parameter to modify the SQL statementWhen I look at the properties of the data connection for the gridview data, I can bring up the Query properties and see the select statement. I also see the properties panel. I can add a property Name (Mine is "ID"). I then chose "Control" in Parameter Source and selected the ControlID for the dropdown list that has the ID information that I want to use for the parameter. I went into the advanced properties and modified some of the information because the ControlID is a Text field and the Database Column is a BigInt.My select statement looks like this:
What I don't know is how to get the parameter into the select statement.I've tried:
