I'm trying to install the mysql connector .net 6.2.2 on a Windows Server 2008 64bit without any succes.

It seems that the Web Providers give an error when installing, but I can't find the reason for this. On my local machine everything works fine.

Providing the error message would be very helpful for people to help you determine an answer. –  Tim Jan 24 '12 at 18:46
It only gave the error that the installation failed. Running mysql.data.msi as an administrator the machine.config was not modified. When I did this manually, the installation gives no errors, but the membership .net connector is still not working. The error Message now is: Unable to find the requested .Net Framework Data Provider. It may not be installed. (PS on a Windows 7 machine it all works...) –  Cerveser Feb 14 '12 at 11:12

Turned out to be a Mysql bug. I needed the most recent mysql.data.msi version 6.4.4. and I was trying 6.2.2...

Why don't you just add the connector library from Nuget, that way you can also move that dependency state from the server and into the application. This will make it easier to move the application around and deploy it other places.

Thanks, but I can't use Nuget in my Visual Studio version... –  Cerveser Jan 25 '12 at 9:35
I think you can use nuget from the command line: nuget.codeplex.com/releases/view/58939 –  friism Feb 1 '12 at 7:05
