Default installing ADO.NET provider

Hi,

I received the ADO.NET provider and it won't install.

"No supported compilers (Visual Studio NET,...) appear to be installed."
Aborting installation.

I'm using VS2005 Pro for the .NET stuff but I also have
BDS2006 Architect which should qualify for .NET as well.

The installer seems to be quite old, pre BDS2006 at least,
maybe I got the wrong installer?

So how do I install?
(no hurry, I'm trying not to work during Easter)

Hannes has been without internet during easter; he is working very hard on
getting their new house ready to move into. Sorry that the sales email has
been a bit slow during this period.

I congratulate Hannes with their new house, but he's *not* spent the last
couple of years moving in!

The development of the NexusDB ADO.NET provider is a sad story, and selling
this sh*t as a commercial software is what I'd call a plain fraud.

I wouldn't say it that hard, but I'm not to happy with it either.

I promoted NexusDB within our company and we used it for some big
projects. Actually, our two biggest projects are still running on
NexusDB. while we where very happy with the 1.x series, the 2.x series
where problematic and unstable for a long time.

Our projects need to move on either and our flagship will be rewritten
this year in C#/.Net. NexusDB would be a valid solution, but we lost our
trust in the product. Not a single stable release of the .NET provider
since 2 years. It even did get out of the beta stage. That and the pre
2.06 problems did a lot of bad things to our trust in NexusDB. We can't
afford this and therefore, as the architect of our main product, I
decided to move on and switch to MS SQL Server.

To bad...

I moved all .NET development to VS2005 and MSSQL january 2006 and I am very
happy with that decision.
Delphi for NET is not at option, it is too late, and there still is nada for
NET 2.

However, I do need a product to fill the gap for smaller installations and
for supporting current customers, also for ASP.NET and I was hoping and
still believe that this will be solved someday soon.
All current customers using NexusDB are very happy and there are absolutely
no problems.

That's a very precise description of the situation.

I understand perfectly.

Believe me or not, even I do understand. The ADO provider unfortunately has at
the moment the lowest priority of our products and even though I really want
to get that sorted I need to stick to these priorities.

Yes, but selling an unfunctional product that has been in a alpha/beta stage
for two years as a commercial product is in my book a plain fraud.

It is not that it's not functional as provider. This is an untrue claim as
there are quite some clients who have products based on it in production. It's
performance isn't really that bad either if result sets are kept relatively
small. What I fully agree on is that the IDE integration is practically
non-existant and thus using the provider is much harder than necessary. Please
also note that there's yet no official product that supports .NET V2
interfaces even though a good bunch of them are supported with the current
..NET V1.x release.
Also please note that the product is *clearly* marked as pre-order.

I don't want to talk away from mistakes and bad progress on the product but
claiming that it's fraud and not working in the advertised functionality is
simply not true.
