Thanks, Craig. I installed the 32-bit patch since I'm running XP, but it
looks like it will only work under Visual Studio 2008 since the registry
entries are added under
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\VisualStudio\9.0\DataProviders] &
[HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\VisualStudio\9.0\DataSources]. I
went ahead and modified the .reg files for version 10.0 and added them to
my registry. Visual Studio started up fine, but the IBM data provider did
not show up in Data Sources. I am currently using the Express edition,
however. If I purchase Professional at some point and the fix works, I'll
let the list know. Anyone with 2010 Professional or above installed brave
enough to give it a shot? It appears to only install those two entries, so
the patch shouldn't be difficult to reverse.



IBM posted some files that modify the registry to add support for their
V6R1 .NET Provider in Visual Studio. The files work with VS2008, they may
work with VS2010. Some information about the IBM posts are in these
