Using Advantage with Visual Studio 2005
With the release of Advantage 8.1 new support for the Visual Studio 2005 (VS2005) IDE was added. The Advantage .NET Data Provider now has support for Table Adapters and the Server Explorer. Support for these objects makes Advantage and VS2005 work together better.
