Unable to do simple Entity Framework project - no code gen

Post by ericnel » Tue 17 Mar 2009 18:46

Hi all,

I create a new VS2008 project
I add the edml file and map two table from Northwind
I validate - its ok
I save
Back in VS2008 I hit build
The .cs file contains:
// Custom tool DevartEfGenerator failed. See Error List window for details.

But Error List in VS2008 has no entries.

I can launch the tool outside of VS2008 and hit generate and get a populated cs. BUT must admit I am then stumped how to include it all into VS2008 project . For this route I tried adding the .cs, the msdl, ssdl and csdl file but it fails with a metadata error when creating the ObjectContext. I also tried marking the csdl etc as embedded resource but no luck.

Help :-)

Thank you for the report, we have reproduced the problem.
It will be fixed in the next build of Entity Developer.
