VS 2010: no Entity Framework or LINQ support for SQL Server 2000 SQLOLEDB connection?

Posted By:      Posted Date: September 01, 2010    Points: 0   Category :ASP.Net
 
Hello, I'm working with Visual Studio 2010 and for Data Connections am connecting to a SQL Server 2000 production database. When I try to drag a table to a .dbml file, the Object Relational Designer says, "The selected object(s) use an unsupported data provider."If I try to create an .edmx file via Generate from database, then the alert is, "This server version is not supported. You must have Microsoft SQL Server 2005 or later."So VS 2010 has no support for the Data Entity Framework or LINQ when connecting to a SQL Server 2000 database? If that is the case, what is the best data access strategy for this scenario?

Can not establish a connection to SQL Server 2008 R2 via Visual Studio 2010 Framework 4.0

  

Hello All, I would appreciate any help with this.

I believe my problem exists within the web.config which already had code in it to connect to SQL Server Express 2008.

I uninstalled the SQL Server Express that came with Visual Studio 2010.

I installed SQL Server 2010 R2 Developer, and I'm able to connect via Management Studio and through Visual Studio's Server Explorer's Data Connections I am connected.

I did run aspnet_regsql.exe within the 4.0 folder in order to create the database with Microsoft Service Providers.

Here is the ServerName: USER-5529234649 

Here is the name of the DataBase:  StepByStepChapter9

Here is the name of the Connection within Visual Studio's Server Explorer's Data Connections:  user-5529234649.StepByStepChapter9.dbo

Here is the code I changed in the web.config:

<configuration>
  <connectionStrings>
      <!--<add name="ApplicationServices"
            connectionString="data source=.\SQLEXPRESS;Integrated   Security=SSPI;AttachDBFilename=|DataDirectory|\aspnetdb.mdf;User Instance=true"
            providerName="System.Data.SqlClient" />-->
      <add name="ApplicationServices" connectionString="data source=user-5529234649\Step

Multiple database support with Entity Framework

  
One of the features introduced in Entity Framework is being database independent. Which mean each database provider can support Entity Framework by implementing its provider.

This feature allows you build applications independent from the underplaying database provider. In this post I'm going to show how to build an application that support multiple databases using same conceptual model made by Entity Framework.

SQLXML 3.0: Build Data-Driven Web Services with Updated XML Support for SQL Server 2000

  

XML is becoming the ubiquitous data format on the Web, and XML support in SQL Server is evolving to meet the additional demand. Using XML, SOAP, HTTP, and SQL Server, you can now build powerful Web Services easily. To show just how simple it is with SQLXML 3.0, this article walks the reader through the process step by step, from setting up a virtual directory enabling data access via HTTP to executing queries and building Web Services. Finally, the author illustrates the creation of two Web Services clients-one with C# that works with the Microsoft .NET Framework and one with the SOAP Toolkit 2.0 for anyone still using earlier development tools.

SQL server 2008 compact editioin + Entity Framework: Can we backup the SQL server compact edition da

  
our application uses the SQL server 2008 compact edition and entity framework. The application will control the instrument. It may run for several days before it stops. In order to protect the database crash (database failure), we plan to backup SQL compact database during running. Can we backup or duplicate the ~.sdf when application is running? Is there any SQL server command we can call inside the application to achive the backup? Or we only can backup the database when application is not running. thx!  

How to setup Query Result Shaping for LinQ to SQL instead of Entity Framework?

  
Hi, I am new to this, and I am trying to implement a linq query similar to db.Genres.Include("Albums") command from mvc music store using my current DB setup. I realize that the tutorial mentions Checlking the "Include foreign key columns in the method" when creating the tables in ADO.NET, but if I am using LINQ to SQL classes, then how can I obtain the same effect. And how do I use db.Genres.Include("Albums") to simplify my life? Thanks

Entity Framework - how to join tables without LINQ and with only string?

  

Hi all,

I have a question about Entity Framework. Please answer if you know answer on this. I have such query :

    String queryRaw =
        "SELECT " +
        "p.ProductName AS ProductName " +
        "FROM ProductEntities.Products AS p " +
        "INNER JOIN CategoryEntities.Categories AS c " +
        "ON p.CategoryID = c.CategoryID ";
   
    ObjectQuery<DbDataRecord> query = new ObjectQuery<DbDataRecord>(queryRaw, entityContext);
   
    GridView1.DataSource = query;
    GridView1.DataBind();



Particularly I want to join few tables in one query, but I can NOT use LINQ and can NOT use ObjectQuery with objects mapped to DB fields inside my query. Because each entity creates dynamically. So this is what i can NOT use :

http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb425822.aspx#linqtosql_topic12

http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb896339%28v=VS.90%29.aspx

The question is can I use something like this instead of using objects?

query.Join ("INNER JOIN CategoryEntities.Category ON p.CategoryID = c.CategoryID ");
