Accessing the BizDataX Designer

After the installation is complete, BizDataX Designer can be accessed by creating a new Visual Studio project on the BizDataX Package Executable template.

Update to a newer version

The update to the newer version includes uninstalling the BizDataX Designer in the Control Panel and installing the new version using the new BizDataXDesignerSetup.ms installation file. Meanwhile, projects created on the BizDataX Package Executable template will not be able to be loaded within Visual Studio, and will therefore be unusable.

Note that both NuGet packages and their dependencies must be updated.
