TypeInitializationException occured in 'System.Data.Entity.dll' - type initializer 'ExtentPlaceholderCreator'

asp.net-mvc c# entity-framework

Question

Running Visual Studio 2013 ASP.NET MVC 4 Entity Framework (EF) 5

After running my project, when navigating to the 'create' page. I try to post information to local mysql database, this exception is thrown...

An exception of type 'System.TypeInitializationException' occurred in System.Data.Entity.dll but was not handled in user code

Additional information: The type initializer for 'ExtentPlaceholderCreator' threw an exception.

at this location in my AuctionController.cs file

[HttpPost]
public ActionResult Create([Bind(Exclude="CurrentPrice")]Models.Auction auction)
{
    if (ModelState.IsValid)
    {
        // Save to the database
        var db = new MvcAuction.Models.AuctionsDataContext();
        db.Auctions.Add(auction);

        db.SaveChanges();

        return RedirectToAction("Index");
    }

    return Create();
}

Click here to see screenshot of error

This is my Database Context class file:

 namespace MvcAuction.Models
{
    public class AuctionsDataContext : System.Data.Entity.DbContext
    {
        public System.Data.Entity.DbSet<Auction> Auctions { get; set; }
    }
}

I think the issue is going wrong in my web.config file:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<configuration>
  <configSections>
    <section name="entityFramework" type="System.Data.Entity.Internal.ConfigFile.EntityFrameworkSection, EntityFramework, Version=5.0.0.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=b77a5c561934e089" requirePermission="false" />
  </configSections>
  <connectionStrings>
    <add name="DefaultConnection" connectionString="Data Source=(LocalDb)\v11.0;Initial Catalog=aspnet-MvcAuction-20121126103244;Integrated Security=SSPI;AttachDBFilename=|DataDirectory|\aspnet-MvcAuction-20121126103244.mdf" providerName="System.Data.SqlClient" />
    <add name="MvcAuction.Models.AuctionsDatacontext" connectionString="Data Source=(LocalDb)\v11.0;Integrated Security=SSPI;AttachDBFilename=|DataDirectory|\MvcAuction.Models.AuctionsDatacontext.mdf" providerName="System.Data.SqlClient" />
  </connectionStrings>

I am following this tutorial: https://www.lynda.com/ASP-NET-tutorials/Persisting-data-Entity-Framework-code-first/109762/120303-4.html?autoplay=true

The teacher is using Visual Studio 2012, his works fine:D

I do not know why this is holding me up. Nor what exactly it is asking, to my knowledge there were no breaking changes from Visual Studio 2012 to 2013.

Accepted Answer

Ok I found the solution here:

Entity Framework cannot update database

First of all, if I would have post the entire stack trace it would have been more helpful:

Notice the last InnerException: System.EntryPointNotFoundException. After researching this error (I didn't see it earlier) I found this code to add to my web.config file and it worked!

 <runtime>
  <assemblyBinding xmlns="urn:schemas-microsoft-com:asm.v1">
    <dependentAssembly>
      <assemblyIdentity name="Microsoft.SqlServer.Types" publicKeyToken="89845dcd8080cc91" />
      <bindingRedirect oldVersion="1.0.0.0-11.0.0.0" newVersion="10.0.0.0" />
    </dependentAssembly>
  </assemblyBinding>
</runtime>

I believe it has something to do with an sql update breaking something. This article & comments were also helpful: http://www.networksteve.com/forum/topic.php/Entity_framework_can't_make_updates_in_db_(missing_entry_point_S/?TopicId=97401&Posts=2

p.s: I am very new to stackoverflow, if this question and answer should be discarded in favor of the one I referenced that's fine.
