A little consideration for the MySql users

You have created code that REQUIRES the use of a certain version of the MySQL.DATA.dll code as if all users have that version.  Not true.

I cannot for the life of me understand why you have not included THAT version of the assembly in the bin file you distribute.

An earlier set of messages wondered why his code worked on his development system but would not work on his host server.  More than likely it is because he had installed, and thus had a GAC 'factory' on his development system but not on his hosting site.  Including that dll assemby in the bin directory would, of course, have prevented that problem.
