Package Approved

MySQL Connector/Net enables you to develop .NET applications that require secure, high-performance data connectivity with MySQL. It implements the required ADO.NET interfaces and integrates into ADO.NET-aware tools. You can build applications using your choice of .NET languages. Connector/Net is a fully managed ADO.NET data provider written in 100% pure C#. It does not use the MySQL C client library.

For notes detailing the changes in each release of Connector/Net, see MySQL Connector/Net Release Notes.

MySQL Connector/Net includes full support for:

  • Features provided by MySQL Server up to and including MySQL Server 8.0.

  • Large-packet support for sending and receiving rows and BLOB values up to 2 gigabytes in size.

  • Protocol compression, which enables compressing the data stream between the client and server.

  • Connections using TCP/IP sockets, named pipes, or shared memory on Windows.

  • Connections using TCP/IP sockets or Unix sockets on Unix.

  • The Open Source Mono framework developed by Novell.

  • Entity Framework.

  • .NET for Windows 8.x Store apps (Windows RT Store apps).

This document is intended to be a developer guide for MySQL Connector/Net and includes a full syntax reference. Syntax information is also included within the ConnectorNET.chm file included with the Connector/Net distribution.

If you are using MySQL 5.0 or later, and Visual Studio as your development environment, you can also use the MySQL Visual Studio Plugin. The plugin acts as a DDEX (Data Designer Extensibility) provider: you can use the data design tools within Visual Studio to manipulate the schema and objects within a MySQL database. For more information see MySQL for Visual Studio.

MySQL Connector/Net supports full versions of Visual Studio 2008, 2010, 2012, 2013, 2015, and 2017, although the extent of support may be limited depending on your versions of MySQL Connector/Net and Visual Studio. For details, see MySQL for Visual Studio.

MySQL Connector/Net 6.8 (and earlier) does not support Express versions of Microsoft products, including Microsoft Visual Web Developer. MySQL Connector/Net 6.9, 6.10, and 7.0 do provide support for these products.


From Connector/Net 5.1 through 6.6, the Visual Studio Plugin is part of the main Connector/Net package. Starting with 6.7, the Visual Studio Plugin has been separated out and renamed to MySQL for Visual Studio. For release information, see MySQL for Visual Studio Release Notes.

In cases where actual malware is found, the packages are subject to removal. Software sometimes has false positives. Moderators do not necessarily validate the safety of the underlying software, only that a package retrieves software from the official distribution point and/or validate embedded software against official distribution point (where distribution rights allow redistribution).

Chocolatey Pro provides runtime protection from possible malware.
