Chapter 8 Connector/Net Support for Windows Store

Starting with 6.7, Connector/Net fully supports building Windows Store apps. Windows Store are based on .NET but use a very restrictive subset of that functionality. The main difference is the complete lack of the ADO.Net data subsystem. Below is a list of the differences between Connector/Net 6.7 and Connector/Net RT 6.7. Please note that we are looking at ways of bringing these functionalities back in future versions.

Using Connector/Net RT is easy. Simply create a Windows Store application using Visual Studio and then reference the MySql.Data.RT.dll assembly in your project. The code you write should be exactly the same as for normal Connector/Net (including using same namespace MySql.Data.MySqlClient) except for the differences listed above.
