    Hi ,

    Then have you upgraded to EF 6?In previous versions of EF the code was split between core libraries (primarily System.Data.Entity.dll) shipped as part of the .NET Framework and out-of-band (OOB) libraries (primarily EntityFramework.dll) shipped in a NuGet package. EF6 takes the code from the core libraries and incorporates it into the OOB libraries .Please refer to link below for upgrading to EF6:

    Hi tvb2727,

    The only option that comes up is "Generate from database"

    After choosing "Generate from database" , you could select the connection to the database you created and choose database object to include in your model . Please refer to links below for detail steps:

    Yes, but how do I know it is using the EntityFramework.dll now compared to the System.Data.Entity?  The reason I want to use the new one EntityFramework 6.1 is because I want to use the .ToString() functionality in my LINQ queries.
