# 4619 ElevateDB .NET Data Adapter Not Visible in Visual Studio 2017 After Installation

The DataProvider is not available in VS2017. I have reinstalled the product a few times with no success.

Comments Comments and Workarounds
During installation, the installer needs to update the private registry for Visual Studio 2017. Unfortunately, prior to 2.28, it was looking for one, and only one, 15.0* directory in the user's application directory tree, and punted when it saw more than one.

The workaround was to rename the "15.0" directory to something like "Old15.0", run the installation again, and then rename the directory back. That will allow the installation to proceed without issue and should get the data provider working in the Visual Studio 2017 IDE.

Resolution Resolution
Fixed Problem on 3/14/2018 in version 2.28 build 1
