I am writing a small program to read, and make corrections if necessary, documents from a FileStream Database. The problem is, I can't get the Data Source window to to show the database in order to drag the columns to my form. When I open the Data Sources window it says

'This window is not supported for the selected project'

I have created a Windows Forms project in Visual Basic for Desktop. I can bring up the database in Server Explorer, and show the Table columns but I can't drag and drop from that window. I have been programming in Visual Studio for over 10 years using Data Source window to complete my forms and have never had this, is it something new?

What I have tried:

Haven't tried much except looked at Server Explorer knowing in the back of my mind that wouldn't work.

I have never used that window, I don't think, so can you just do it manually instead?

Solved my problem, I was using the wrong designer. I was using Windows Forms App, and should have been using Windows Forms App(.NET Framework)
