I installed EF 5.0 into the .DAL, now I want to install EF 5.0 into .BLL from Nuget
But the default online Nuget package always comes up with 6.0, which gives error when used together with the 5.0 EF I use in DAL.
Where can I install the 5.0 version of EntityFramework into my Nuget packages??
View -> Other windows -> Package Manager Console then run
install-package entityframework -version 18.104.22.168.
-project <project.name> if you want to install it in a specific project.
here is what I experienced: (before I begin... kudos to devnull for the answer).
I clicked on:
1) View -> Other windows -> Package Manager Console then ran
2) install-package entityframework -version 22.214.171.124.
The uninstall started, but then rolled back, as it detected I already had installed Entity Framework (EF) 6.0.2 ...
>PM> install-package entityframework -version 126.96.36.199
Installing 'EntityFramework 5.0.0'. You are downloading EntityFramework from Microsoft, the license agreement to which is available at http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkId=253898&clcid=0x409.

So then I uninstalled the Entity Framework 6.0.2 and found it had a dependency that also needed to be removed... then I was finally able to uninstall the Entity Framework 6.0.2 and then add the Entity Framework 184.108.40.206
PM> uninstall-package entityframework -version 6.0.2 uninstall-package : Unable to uninstall 'EntityFramework 6.0.2' because 'AnotherFakeDbSet 220.127.116.11' depends on it.
So then I uninstalled these two and installed Entity Framework 18.104.22.168
PM> uninstall-package AnotherFakeDbSet -version 22.214.171.124
PM> uninstall-package entityframework -version 6.0.2
PM> install-package entityframework -version 126.96.36.199
I like the console... quicker than searching for the packages if you know the version #. And if you haven't checked out "Powershell" (the basis for the console -- I find it's time well spent - it allows for virtually unlimited automation)
