I wanted to post here:
but it doesn't seem possible.

Is there any progress on that? A dotConnect alternative is full of bugs and quirks (and even charges the full version). A free alternative found on stackoverflow does not support the DataSet class.

The ticket you linked to is closed.  I think that is why replies to it are not
allowed by anonymous users.

Meanwhile, per the current Community Support Policies, the design-time components
for Visual Studio are no longer officially supported.  Unfortunately, this means
that support for Visual Studio 2017 will (most likely) not be added.

I actually looked into what it would take to do it and came to the conclusion
that it would be extremely difficult given the changes that Microsoft made to
the Visual Studio installation and extensibility model in Visual Studio 2017.
