I have installed the latest version, but when I try to create a new connection in VS2013 I don't see the SQLite provider. In the wizard installation I ensure to check the options to installed this feature.

I have use Windows 8.1 and VS2013 with a normal user account and privileges.

Could you please post all the setup logs?

The log files should be located in the %TEMP% directory on the target machine.
They will have names similar to "Setup Log 2013-12-25 #001.txt" and

Also, please check for a log file named "dd_vcredist_x86_2013*.log" in the %TEMP%
directory as well.

I reviewed the log files you uploaded; however, I did not find the any named
"Installer.exe.trace.tmp*.log" and those contain the most useful diagnostic
data for this type of issue.

Do you still have those logs available somewhere?

Ok, I've reviewed the new logs and found no obvious issues.  Is an error message
seen when starting Visual Studio 2013 or when trying to add a data source?

Are you using Visual Studio 2013 Standard Edition or better?

I don't get any error message in any time (installation, open VS2013 or creating the connection). The only issue is that when when I try to create a new connection, I don't have the option of select SQLilte provider.

I am using VS2013 ultimate.

Well, if I star VS2013 with a account with admin privileges then I can create a connection.

Then I start a again VS2013 with the first account user, and the problem persist. So the problem it seems with normal user accounts.

would it be possible to enable the possibility to create a connection from a normal user account?

The design-time components are only available for use by the user that installed

One possible workaround is to open a Visual Studio 2013 command prompt and run the following command:

devenv.exe /setup

I is it possible to install the design-components in a user that has not admin privileges? because it's is needed to install it.

Also I try to execute the comand that you told me, but I can't find the devenv.exe file. Could you tell me which is the default path of this file?

I run the command that you say and it works. Although it gives me an warning, now I can create the connection.

Thank so much.

The design-time components installer fix (i.e. running 'devenv.exe /setup'
automatically) is now on trunk via check-in [6a8017067f].
