SQL Anywhere in Visual Studio

I'm trying to get going on .NET in SQL Anywhere and I'm having a problem. My understanding is that all I need to do is add a reference to the iAnywhere.Data.SQLAny...dll and add an Imports IAnywhere.Data.SQLAnywhere. When I go to create a connection I don't see the data provider for SQLAnywhere listed. Am I missing something?

    • I have tested with Visual Studio 2013 Update 5 and SQL Anywhere 17.0.4.2053. In Server Explorer I have cliecked on Connect to database icon, for opening Choose Data Source window. I have selected other, and in the drop down list I can see .NET Framework Data Provider for SQL Anywhere 17. Are you testing with the same versions?
