Could not load file or assembly 'EntityFramework, Version=6.0.0.0

.net asp.net c# entity-framework visual-studio

Question

What am I doing wrong? How do I troubleshoot this?

I have a solution that has multiple projects. It is an MVC .NET 4.5 web application.

When invoking one of the projects AFTER I start in debug mode, I am getting this error.

The project that is causing this error has the following references:

enter image description here

They are both versions 6.0.0.0

Accepted Answer

The Main project probably has a reference to a older version of Entity Framework and thus the older dll is in the build. Make sure that all projects that are using the problematic project have the new reference

Had a similar issue and after a lot of efforts I used Nuget to uninstall EF then add it again, Clean and rebuild the project.

So simply and worked, at least for me!
