i get this warning message when I try to include
the "using System.Data.MySqlClient;" directive.


'mysqlclient' is missing in the 'System.Data' yet I have installed the connector.
what could be the problem?

You need to add the dll to the references. Right click references, select add and browse for the dll.

Which connector did you install as there are about a billion different ones?

the dll I did add it the very first thing...that's why I'm surprised

mysql connector 6.3.6

According to the documentation I could find, the namespace is MySql.Data.MySqlClient

i tried to uninstall the connector,it only ran for sometime then began to rollback, now it continues to do just that-rollback and can't allow me to uninstall it or even install another version.Do you have an idea of what I could do to resolve this?
