T4 Poco Generator throws error: Data does not exist in Micrososft RRS feed

  • Question

  • I'm using Poco Generator v3.1.3. When I try and generate the .cs class I get the error at the following line
    _resourceManager = Microsoft.Data.Entity.Design.Templates.TemplateResources.ResourceManager;

    The error states that Data does not exist in the namespace Microsoft. It looks like I need Microsoft.Data.Entity.dll. Where can I find and download the dll?

  • Hi bwsquatch,

    Welcome to MSDN forum.

    It seems that your project lacks Microsoft.Data.Entity.Design.dll. You can find it at visual studio installation directory:"C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft Visual Studio\2019\Enterprise\Common7\IDE".

    Any feedback will be expected.

    Best Regards,
