.Net framework 2.0 is the only known cause for missing ADO.NET option.

Sorry for the question, but have you restarted the machine after .NET framework installation?

Yes many times restarted machine.

And enabled .NET framework 3.5 (includes 2.0 and 3.0)


Go to modify CR Designer install and use Custom options and make sure the ADO.NET driver is selected.
