Unable to get Entity Developer to list Postgres tables

Post by gswartwood » Wed 09 Mar 2016 16:31

I get a "Can't cast database type char to String" error when trying to get Entity Developer to query postgres database to get a list of tables. I am using Npgsql 3.0.5 driver (installed in GAC) against a Postgres 9.5.1 server running on local machine.

After choosing "Database First" on NHibernate model, I get a "Can't cast database type char to String" popup when trying to query the list of tables, views or functions. It never enumerates the list of tables.

I checked this forum and didn't see a post about this error. Any ideas?

The bug with retrieving metadata by Create Model Wizard is fixed in the newest (5.8.818) public build of Entity Developer: http://forums.devart.com/viewtopic.php?f=32&t=33382.
