No provider of type <Filestream> found. Check the server configuration or install the provider on the client.

Hi,

I wish to use "Microsoft SQL Server Remote Blob" with "FILESTREAM" provider. I installed the "RBS.msi" configured server as guided.

Then I downloaded and executed the Storage Sample (I changed .Net framework to 4.0). When I tries to Write the BLOB to file system I got following error.

No provider of type <Filestream> found. Check the server configuration or install the provider on the client.

After doing some researches in Goggle I found following article.

https://sqlrbs.codeplex.com/discussions/279089

Based on that I changed the .Net framework to 3.5 (from 4.0) and it executed without any issue.

My Question is, is there is fix for .Net framework 4.0? (Any update or something..) My application is on the .Net framework 4.0 and I cant change that to 3.5

Please help..

Thanks in Advance...

Hi,

The RBS.msi released with SQL Server 2012 already has the fix for .Net 4.0 so that should work in your case. You can download it from here http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=35580

Please let us know if you still face issues with this version of RBS.

Thanks,
VIjendra.

Hi Vijendra,
I have developed a Sample application where i am using a control build in 3.5 Framework, At the time i am storing a Document its raising a exception
No provider of type <Filestream> found. Check the server configuration or install the provider on the client.
I am using Sql Server 2008 R2, (we have a limitation we can't use SQL Server 2012) RBS is Registered and Even File Stream is Enabled in Sql Server 2008 R2.

Thanks in advance for providing your assistance.
