  • The tooling for LINQ to Entities will ship with VS2008 SP1. You can download the SP1 beta here:

  • Hi, I still have SP1 installed but the LINQ for Entities is not there or better, I don't know where it is.


    I'm intended to use Crystal Reports of WPF structure to make report.

  • If you have sp1 beta installed, when you do add new item in a project, you should have an option to add an "ADO.NET Entity Data Model".  This is what you use in order to set up a model which will allow you to work with LINQ to Entities.
