Legacy MVC2, EF5, Missing “Ado.Net Entity Data Model” RRS feed

  • Question

  • I was advised to use this from from the MVC forum; https://forums.asp.net/p/2137834/6197578.aspx?p=True&t=636570178650892858

    I have to make a change to an MVC2 project which uses EF 5 on Visual Studio 2010 and I find that the entity data model designer is missing.
    So when I want to do a database update of my EF model, I cannot get the graphical screen of the database design from which I can right click and update automatically. I used to be able to do it but I cannot do so now.
    I tried uninstalling and reinstalling EF 5 but this makes no difference. I see questions asked about this for other versions of Visual Studio, but not for 2010. How do I fix this?

    According to your description, it seems that your visual studio 2010 missing item template named ado.net entity data model designer. please check if your visual studio 2010 installed folder has related item template named AdoNetEntityDataModelCSharp.zip. here is the folder path.  installed folder\Microsoft Visual Studio 10.0\Common7\IDE\ItemTemplates\CSharp\Code\1033 or Microsoft Visual Studio 10.0\Common7\IDE\ItemTemplates\CSharp\Data\1033. if not, please copy related item template from other machine which has related item template. if you cannot find related item template, please try:

    1. Uninstall VS2010,

    2. Clean anything related to Visual Studio in System Registry with some cleaning software.

    3. Then reinstall VS2010.

    Best regards,

    Zhanglong

    The poster is talking about the Windows O/S Registry.
