Advantage .NET Data Provider Release 10 for Windows (32-bit and 64-bit)

This release is unsupported. Downloads provided as a courtesy.


Notes: - Advantage .NET Data Provider

This Service Update of the Advantage .NET Data Provider addresses the following issues:

  1. Added an Unprepare() method to the AdsCommand class of the Advantage .NET data provider to allow closing the SQL statement handle and releasing the tables opened on the server.

  2. Fixed a bug in the Advantage .NET Data Provider that caused connections to be destroyed rather than reused from the pool when the "Connection Lifetime" connection property was set to a non-zero value.

  3. Fixed a bug that caused the Visual Studio IDE to crash when creating a TableAdapter with a SELECT statement in which the table name case (upper/lower) did not match the name of the actual file on disk. The fix for this issue is in the server (Advantage Database Server and/or Advantage Local Server).
