The custom tool 'MSLinqToSQLGenerator' failed. Unspecified error RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am running a fresh installation of VS2008 with SP1 etc applied. Every time I edit the model I receive the above message and the *.designer.cs file is deleted from disk.

    I have tried creating extremely simple models with only a handful of tables and the error still occurs randomly AFTER the initial creation.

    I cannot believe that the generator is really this flaky but everything I have tried produces the same result so I'm going back to bad old ADO.NET

    Go into the partial class file for the data context and move the 'using' statements inside the 'namespace' block.
