    Unanswered: There is a IBM DB2 provider that works with Entity Framework 4.0 in VS2010?

    There is already a DB2 provider to Entity Framework 4.0? I'm looking for one that shows up in the "Change Data Source" dialog window this way (in VS2010):


    Right-click on the edmx design surface. Select "Update Model from Database" On the Update Wizard, click "New Connection" Next to the "Data source" textbox, click "Change..." In the Change Data Source window, I am only seeing the following data sources in the list:

    Microsoft SQL Server
    Microsoft SQL Server Compact 3.5 Microsoft SQL
    Server Database File
    When I select "other", I only see two entries in the Data Provider dropdown:

    .Net Framework Data Provider for Microsoft SQL Server Compact 3.5
    .Net Framework Data Provider for SQL Server
    How do I get the DB2 provider(s) to show up here so that I can use them to model my DB2 tables?
