I am trying to create a new database using Entity Framework but I always getting that exception

Directory lookup for the file "c:\users\oren\documents\visual studio 2012\Projects\ResturantSite\ResturantSite\App_Data\ResturantSite.SiteContext.mdf" failed with the operating system error 2(The system cannot find the file specified.).
CREATE DATABASE failed. Some file names listed could not be created. Check related errors

Line 28: using (var db = new SiteContext())
Line 29: {
Line 30: db.User.Add(u);
Line 31: db.SaveChanges();
Line 32: }

Line 30 throws the exception

I hope somebody can help

Accepted Answer

Your application is missing the App_Data folder. Right click on your project, select Add, then Add ASP.Net Folder and choose the App_Data folder.

This ensures the correct folder exists for your application.
