In Visual Studio 2015 I try to go to Tools->Connect to Database and get the following error message:
"An expected error occurred in the .NET Framework Data Provider for SQL Anywhere 16. Please contact the provider vendor to resolve this problem."
I installed iAnywhere.Data.SQLAnywhere.v.4.5 and this did not resolve the issue. Does anyone know what is required here?

SQL Anywhere 16 is a SAP product. See SAP support for assistance.

Thanks but I don't actually need to connect to a SAP database. This is why I'm baffled as to why Visual Studio keeps giving this error. I installed SQL Anywhere 16 to see if it would stop the errors. I do have SAP Business Objects BI tools installed. We
use Business Objects BI 4.2 for report writing. I need to connect to a SQL server database.
Maybe there is some software conflict going on. At this point I'm running a repair on my VS 2015 install.

Ran the repair on the VIsual Studio 2015. This appears to have resolved the issue.
