The Pervasive Data Provider for .NET runs as 100% managed code and requires the Microsoft .NET Framework 1.1 to be installed. If you do not already have the Framework, the Provider installation program gives you the option of installing it.
Run the installation by executing
setup.exe on the distribution
media or from the download.
During installation, an empty DOS window titled
cmd.exe may temporarily appear. The installation of
Pervasive Data Provider for .NET initiates a DOS process to install the
Provider's components. See the components
list for file details.
If you are running any prior version of the Pervasive Data Provider for .NET, uninstall it before installing this version (126.96.36.199). Use the operating system Add/Remove Programs to uninstall the Provider from the development computer and from any client computers.
The Provider should be installed on the computer where .NET application development will be performed, and also on the client computer(s) that will execute the application.
The Provider is installed to the Global Assembly Cache (GAC) during the installation process.
