Thanks Richard Hi, Sql is a commandline tool provided by is not included in this addin but it should be already available on your machine if you have . NET then you should be able to find it in C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft SDKs\Windows\v8.1A\bin\NETFX 4.5.1 Tools\ if you have older version of .
NET then it must be there in one of the folder under C:\Program Files (x86)\Microsoft SDKs\Windows\ Just set this in your PATH and you should be good to go.
When you select the Referesh command, the addin will update the DBML with latest changes from your database and reapply the customizations. However, I don't think you got exactly what I was going for.
But if you schema changes are incompatible with your previous verison then you may have to create the mapping file again and make your customizations again can use any merge tools like winmerge for this purpose. Let me see if I can make the scenario more clear...
Regards Azeet(A year later..) I just had the same problem, and this thread answered it for me.
It would've been nice if the addin had searched for, and set this path for me, in these two recommended locations though. This is the dumbest and the biggest headache causing tool ever created, you should get a job at microsoft and continue to make peoples lives more difficult..
Hi, I have installed your add in for VS2013 and clicked Create/Refresh on my dbml file and after filling in the connection details and clicking OK I get an exception saying it cannot find Causing Visual Studio 2012 to panic and not load it, which in turn breaks the drag/drop action of a Table object from Server Explorer to my DBML surface.You could probably fix this issue by manually removing this file and then running a Visual Studio 2012 repair. So I opted for the fast route which goes as follows: – Find a machine with Visual Studio 2012 installed that never had the Visual Studio 2013 Preview installed.XML file created by Microsoft's Object Relational (OR) Designer, which is included with Visual Studio and other Microsoft database software development tools; contains "LINQ to SQL" (Language-Integrated Query to Structured Query Language) entity classes that map to objects within a database.DBML files are used by the Visual Studio Code Generator to auto-generate Visual Basic, C#, or XML source code files.This is how I have been doing a COMPLETE refresh of the entire database (not an UPDATE the existing model type of thing).
