Known issues

  • Database vendors other than SQL Server and Access use dynamic assembly loading. This may cause some security problems depending on your system's configuration and which version of the .NET framework you are using. If you encounter problems loading dynamic assemblies, they can likely be resolved by applying the following element into the configuration files of fsi.exe, devenv.exe and your program or the program using your library : http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/dd409252(VS.100).aspx


No OR-mapping: FSharp compiles your database to .NET-types.
