Im unable to scaffold a controller (MVC5 Controller with views, using Entity Framework) in Visual studio 2013 (update 3 and 4). The error message is below:
There was an error running the selected code generator:
A configuration for type 'Library.Morthwind.Models.Catgeory' has already been added. To reference the existing configuration use the Entity<T>() or ComplexType<T>() methods
I have created the models by selecting 'Reverse Engineer Code First' from the 'Entity Framework Power Tools Beta 4' Tool menu.
Any ideas about what might cause this error?

OnModelCreating override using the following:

Controller scaffolding to run as expected.
VS 2013 update 2 had a problem with this and the scaffolding came up with an unhelpful error with no further information. In installed Update 3 and it gave just enough detail to track down the underlying issue.
