var genres = storeDB.Genres.ToList(); error!

var genres = storeDB.Genres.ToList();


I keep getting this error "Unable to find the requested .Net Framework Data Provider.  It may not be installed." 


I do have all the components installed though and this should not be happening! Really need help here as this is driving me nuts!


Thank you

I did read somewhere that there is a problem with the 64bit version of server with this particular error, could this be solved from that view point?

Do you have SQL Server Compact Edition, installed ?

I did, it was actually the 4.0 .net framework that I was missing. I worked instantly after I installed software
