    I downloaded the free edition of OpenAccess and installed it. From within Visual Studio 2010, I added model from the Telerik menu. When I try to update database from model, it opens a Window to add connection. When I click "Add Connection", it displays error: "No data source found".

    I already added reference to FirebirdSQL.Data.FirebirdClient.dll in my Visual Studio project, still it is not recognizing the data source. OpenAccess is successfully recognizing all other databases.

    I have the latest version of Firebird, i.e., 2.5 installed on Windows 7.

    Hi Rohit,

    Do you see the Firebird data source if you try add a connection using the standard 'Server Explorer' from within Visual Studio? In order add a connection to a Firebird database from within Visual Studio, you need to perform some additional steps. You can find the details here.

    Did you try adding the Firebird connection string manually in the Domain Model Wizard? Specifying the connection string manually should work.

    Do let me know if you need further assistance.

    Kind regards,

    Using Server Explorer, I am able to connect to Firebird database using DSN only. No direct Firebird provider is listed as a data source.

    I tried adding the connection string manually, but it is giving error:

    ArgumentException: key=value .....

    It is working for all the other databases like PostgreSQL, Oracle etc.

    I also modified the settings as described in the ReadMe file of FirebirdDDX provider:
    1. Modified GAC,
    2. Modified machine.config.
    3. Modified registry files that came with FirebirdDDX.

    Hello Rohit,

    Can you provide the connection string that you used. We have tested the wizard with the standard ADO.NET connection string for Firebird and do not experience the exception.
    I would like to reproduce the error and provide you with a solution asap.

    All the best,
