The edmx designer/diagram is missing from Visual Studio 2015 RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have recently updated to Visual Studio 2015. Opened up my solution and works. Till I decided to add in an entity to my edmx. So I double-clicked on the edmx file to open the diagram like it should or maybe the model browser at least but it only opens an XML page. I checked any missed installation from the setup but didn't find anything about entity framework there. I tried to create a test solution and create another edmx but ADO.NET entity is missing as well.

    What is going on? Am I going to revert back to Visual studio 2013?

    Also I have checked if the Microsoft SQL data tools are installed and yes the are. This is a real let down for VS 2015.

  • You'll probably have to uninstall VS and install it again. Sometimes, installs don't always work right.

    Sometimes things just happen like a bad install.
