I try to connect to a SQLite Database from Visual Studio 2015 within Server Explorer but the operation fail.

To do that:
- I select "System.Data.SQLite Database File (.NET Framework Data Provider for SQLite)" as Data Source,
- I test the conenction and get OK result 
- select the database in using the browsing option and when I press the OK button I obtain the following error:
"Unable to add data connection.
Could not find any resources appropriate for the specified culture or the neutral culture. Make sure SQLite.Designer.SQLiteDataViewSupport2015.xml" was correctly embedded or linked into the assembly "SQLite.designer" at compile time, or that all the satellite assemblies required are loadable and fully signed."

My configuration:
- Windows 10 Pro 64 Bits
- Visual Studio 2015 Community
- System.Data.SQLite from

If you could provide some more information about the nature of the failure and
the setup logs, that would be useful.

The log files should be located in the %TEMP% directory on the machine.  They
will have names similar to "Setup Log 2015-12-11 #001.txt" and

From the logs, it looks like you had an existing install for Visual Studio 2013
and installed the setup for Visual Studio 2015 into the same directory?

Did you install the VS 2013 setup package first and then the VS 2015 setup
package on top of it?

Yes. I first installed the 4.51 package and then I installed the 4.6 package for VS 2015. I selected install for VS 2015 in the latter install.

Please uninstall all the copies of System.Data.SQLite, reboot, and install only the VS 2015 setup package.

Removed all the SQLite installation, rebooted and reinstall. Now seems to work as expect. Thank you very much.
