the mysql connector net 6.4.4 package did not load correctly

I am new to MySql. I am running Windows 10, Visual Studio 2012 and 2017. I have installed MySql using "mysql-installer-web-community-". I have tried to make sure I have the latest version of the MySQL tools.

MySQL installer has these items:
MySQL Server; ver: 5.7.22; Arch: X64
MySQL Workbench; ver 6.3.10; Arch: X64
MySQL for Visual Studio: 2.0.5 CTP; Arch: X86
Connector/NET; ver 8.0.11; Arch X86

I can run SQL Workbench, and see the data in tables I have created.

But now when I run Visual Studio 2012, I get this error message at startup:
"The 'MySQL Connector Net 6.4.4' package did not load correctly.
The problem may have been caused by a configuration change or by the installation of another extension. You can get more information by examining the file: 'C:\Users\UserName\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\VisualStudio\11.0\Activity.log'.
Continue to show this message?"

I examined the 'Activity.log' file, and here is the section of the file dealing with the MySQL Connection Net:
<time>2018/06/01 18:53:28.793</time>
<description>Begin package load [MySQL Connector Net 6.4.4]</description>
<time>2018/06/01 18:53:28.839</time>
<description>SetSite failed for package [MySQL Connector Net 6.4.4]</description>
<errorinfo>Could not load file or assembly 'Microsoft.VisualStudio.DataDesign.Interfaces, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=b03f5f7f11d50a3a' or one of its dependencies. The system cannot find the file specified.</errorinfo>

Visual Studio 2017 starts without any error messages, only Visual Studio 2012 has the problem.

I have two questions:
1) Why am I getting references to Connector/Net for version 6.4.4 when MySQL Installed says I have Connector/Net version 8.0.11?
2) How can I fix this error message?
