Re: MySql.Data.dll no longer copied locally?

Ummmmm.... OK. I figured out why the .dll wasn't being copied locally. When I installed the new (1.0.3) drivers, I just selected "complete" install. What that does is registers the MySql.Data.dll in the GAC. If the .dll is registered in the GAC, it won't be automatically copied to your project 'bin' folders when you create a reference with Visual Studio.

I reinstalled the drivers, but this time chose "custom", and told it NOT to register in the GAC, and voila!

Now the .dll gets copied into my project 'bin' folders and acts as I would expect. Hope this helps someone.
