How to begin with existing VS2012 edmx

Post by ajmoore79 » Fri 26 Jul 2013 13:29

Hello! I just purchased Entity Developer and I am unable to find my question in the forum- hope someone can help...

I installed ED and opened my existing project in Visual Studio Pro 2012. My question is, how do I get started converting my existing Entity data model to start using it in Entity Developer? Do I have to just recreate the entire model from DB with ED? Or can I just do an "open with" on my existing EDMX file and choose Entity Developer? Or can I create a new ED model and drag-drop from my old EDMX into the new one?

Anyone have any suggestions on the proper path?
Thanks!
Aaron

To migrate, you should open your existing *.edmx model in Entity Developer and save the model in the new *.edml format.
