Installation of a CodeSmith Provider
  • Edit the file "SChemaExplorer.config" that exists in the folder "C:\Documents and Settings\{_your user name_}\Application Data\CodeSmith\{_version_}" to include the details of this provider. In this case "<schemaProvider>Skobe.SchemaProvider.VistaDBSchemaProvider, Skobe.SchemaProvider, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=null</schemaProvider>". For CodeSmith v3.2 I'm not entirely sure this is necessary.
  • Copy the compiled assembly "Skobe.SchemaProvider.dll" to the folder "C:\Program Files\CodeSmith\{_version_}\SchemaProviders". If you currently have CodeSmith running, then restart it.
  • You should now be able to create a datasource within CodeSmith using the VistaDB provider.
  • The "Connection String" required should look like this: Data Source="C:\Dev\ModelExplorer\Database\ModelExplorer.vdb3";
