  • Hello gurus,

    I am running Visual Studio 2012 and I have download the .msi installer file for Entity Framework tools set.

    but when I tried to use entity framework Database first approach, Server explorer gave the message that Entity Framework 6.0 is not installed, get out of this wizard & install it first.

    I learnt that after installing the .MSI installer file of tool kit you need to run the following NUGET command then it will do final polishing of installation over Entity framework.

    'Cuz I had installed the software bundled within the .MSI but it didn't accepted by the VS2012.

    Anyways, this command came into help

    PM> Install-Package EntityFramework

    After going to Tools->Nuget Package Manager->Package Manager Console

    type the above written command and hit enter & wait for 10+ seconds it will complete the formalities of installation & un-installation of Entity framework 5.0

    Thank you!
