I have downloaded and installed SQL AnyWhere 12 Developer edition and also did 'SetupVSPackage.exe' installation. I was able to successfully run 'SimpleViewer' and 'SimpleWin32' samples.
I am using Visual Studio 2012 Express Edition. For my test project, how do I add a connection to the demo database? When I go to add connection in database explorer, I don't see SQL AnyWhere listed in the 'Choose Data Source' window. Please help.
Thanks. - Milind Joshi

The way Visual Studio displays the following screen after hitting [Change...]:
is based on the DbProviderFactories information pulled out of the machine.config file for your respective framework (e.g.
============================== <system.data> <DbProviderFactories> <add name="SQL Anywhere 11 Data Provider" invariant="iAnywhere.Data.SQLAnywhere" description=".Net Framework Data Provider for SQL Anywhere 11" type="iAnywhere.Data.SQLAnywhere.SAFactory, iAnywhere.Data.SQLAnywhere.v4.0, Version=188.8.131.52694, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=f222fc4333e0d400" /> ==============================
If you're not seeing the SQL Anywhere .NET Provider in your Visual Studio dialog with the framework and bitness you're expecting when hitting "Change...", check the
