  1. I’m trying to follow your article: “How to use MySQL for your ASP.NET Identity provider with a custom primary key” at http://insidemysql.com/how-to-use-mysql-for-your-asp-net-identity-provider-with-a-custom-primary-key/.

    The code for the async task isn’t working:
    public class ApplicationUser : IdentityUser

    public async Task GenerateUserIdentityAsync(UserManager manager)
    var userIdentity = await manager.CreateIdentityAsync(this, DefaultAuthenticationTypes.ApplicationCookie);
    return userIdentity;

    Visual Studio tells me that you can’t return a variable, you must return a Task type. This makes sense to me, but I can’t get your code to run. Please help.

  2. HI There..question for you. I am using VS Code on Ubuntu and your example uses a DbContextOptionsBuilder UseMySQL…I get an error on Build (and in the help messaged in the IDE that the DbContextOptionsBuilder does not contain a definition for ‘UseMySQL’. All of the examples that I have seen for the DbContextOptionsBuilder have referenced SQLLight and MSSQL. Was there an earlier configuration that was not captured in this “how-to”? I appreciate any help you can provide.

  3. Hi
    MySQL Connector/ODBC 8.0.11 – there doesn’t seem to be a 32-bit version, is 32-bit support now deemed as not required?

  4. Hi,
    I have tried for weeks now to figure a way to connect my front end MS Access Client app to a MySQL database backend (online). I can do this after installing the MySQL ODBC driver and creating a DSN.

    My Problem:
    Not all my clients have admin rights to their system and getting admin rights is extremely painful for them to do (IT departments stink).

    Is there a way to make a connection string that can use the DLL or an INI file of some sort directly in the connection string?

    Thank you for any help!

  5. Hi,
    When creating tableadapter in VS2019 using Connector/NET, Insert and Update parameters are declared as p1, p2,p3…
    This causes error “…could not find a non-generic method ‘Insert’ that has parameters…”
    It turns out parameter names should match column names with @ prefix.
    Any idea how to solve this ?
