Entity Developer 'EntityFramework.dll' not available

Post by temelvin » Fri 21 Feb 2014 02:38

I just upgraded from the trial version to the latest registered version of dotConnect for Oracle.

I am receiving the following error in Entity developer.
The 'EntityFramework.dll' assembly is not available, thus Entity Framework 5 validation is used instead of Entity Framework 6.

Any help would be appreciated.

This is not error but warning.

Details about the behaviour change are available at http://www.devart.com/dotconnect/oracle ... story.html:
8.2.103 18-Feb-14
Entity Developer
More information messages, when validating EF6 models basing on the EntityFramework.dll functionality, are added (Entity Framework models)

8.2.100 13-Feb-14
Entity Developer
The behaviour is changed: the validation of EF6 models depends on the EntityFramework.dll functionality only (.NET Framework 4.5 is not required any more) (Entity Framework models)
Is your model valid? Have you encountered any problems with it?

Yes my model is valid and everything is working fine.

Is there a way to resolve the warning or is this the default behavior ?

I resolved the warning by copying the EntityFramework.dll to the Entity Developer installation path.

This is a correct approach for a standalone Entity Developer.

If you are using Entity Developer integrated in Visual Studio, it is enough to install EntityFramework v6 package in the project via Package Manager Console.

I can confirm this is still an issue with Entity Developer v5.8.782.

The fix described above solved it.

Thanks
