As you've discovered this doesn't work with Express.

Spend the few hundred to get the Professional Edition and it will work
fine with 2008 or 2010.

Just make sure you're using the V6R1 or above provider.

subject: Re: [SystemiDotNet] Data provider question

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
my registry. Visual Studio started up fine, but the IBM data provider
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,
let the list know. Anyone with 2010 Professional or above installed
enough to give it a shot? It appears to only install those two entries,
the patch shouldn't be difficult to reverse.
