Missing ADO.NET Entity Framework

P: n/a
Hi

I have installed vs2008/.net3.5 SP1 (details below) but I still can't see
ADO.Net Entity Framework under 'New Item' in my WinForm vb.net solution.

What am I doing wrong?

Thanks

I thought the Entity Framework was a set of classes and not an "item" to be
added.

Hi John,

If you go to add to your winforms project, an "ADO.NET Entity Data Model"
should be the first item listed in the data node. It may not be showing if
you have set your winforms project to be 2.0 instead of 3.5. to make sure
you're a 3.5 winforms app, click on "My Project" in solution explorer,
select the compile tab, click on the Advanced Compile Options and make sure
the Target Framework option is set to 3.5. Apparently, it helps if you
stand one one leg while singing while doing this, but as I haven't been able
to confirm the song you're meant to sing I'm not sure that last bit is
completely true ;)

Hi Bill

Yes, it has worked after switching to 3.5. How can I make 3.5 default for a
new project?

Thanks

I think it remembers what you select when you create a new project. (top
right of the new project dialogue)
