Microsoft.Data.Entity.Design, Visual Studio 2013 - error adding ADO.NET RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have this error while trying to add ADO.NET Entity Data Model. I'm targeting .NET 4.5.1, use Visual Studio 2013 and Windows 8.1. I tried reinstalling nuget, VS, frameworks and retargeting or changing entityframework zip. Nothing works or I did something wrong while solving problem : / Anyone having the same issue?

    Error: this template attempted to load component assembly
    'Microsoft.Data.Entity.Design, Version =, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=b0f5f7f11d50a3a'.
