Hi there

Today I have downloaded and installed GAX, GAT, EntLib 3.1 (May 2007), as well as NUnit 2.5. I have gone through all the install steps of all these apps.

However, when I follow these steps:

"Entering Configuration Information<!---->

<!--Content type: Devdiv1. Transform: orcas2mtps.xslt.-->

The following procedures show how to configure the Data Access Application Block.

This procedure explains how to configure the Data Access Application Block. Properties associated with the nodes appear in the right pane.

To add the Data Access Application Block

  1. Open the configuration file. For more information, see Configuring the Application Blocks.
  2. Right-click Application Configuration, point to New, and then click Data Access Application Block."

The Data Access Applciation Block is greyed-out. What am I doing wrong? How should I fix this?

Your help is appreciated.

The Data Access Application Block is already added by default when opening the configuration file with the EntLib Config tool.
