    I am new to telerik and using telerik report designer (standalone) v8.1.14.804 
    When i try to connect to MySql using the connection string: Server=localhost;Database=dbname;Uid=username;Pwd=pass;
    i get this error:
    Failed to find or load the registered .net framework data provider.

    Please note that i have installed mysql .net connector.

    Please advise.

    Hi Farah,

    The SqlDataSource component uses standard ADO.NET objects and the installed on the machine data providers to establish a connection to the specified in the connection string database and to retrieve data.

    The used data provider must be properly installed and registered on the machine. Also it must be considered with the target platform for the application (x86, AnyCPU). For more details check the Data provider is missing in the SqlDataSource wizard KB article.

    Let us know if you have any further questions.


    Check out the Telerik Platform - the only platform that combines a rich set of UI tools with powerful cloud services to develop web, hybrid and native mobile apps.

    I fixed the issue by adding the dll:
    C:\Program Files\MySQL\MySQL Connector Net 6.8.3\Assemblies\v4.0\MySql.Data.dll
    to Telerik folder.
