Assembly 'Microsoft.SqlServer.Types' version 10 or higher could not be found

azure c# entity-framework sql-server visual-studio

Question

I Have a problem. I'm not able to add a Migration to my ASP.NET WebAPI 2 Project. I get error:

"Spatial types and functions are not available for this provider because the assembly 'Microsoft.SqlServer.Types' version 10 or higher could not be found."

I know there are several questions and answers about this, like:

But! The problem is...

  • I already have installed Microsoft.SqlServer.Types.
  • I already have Global.asax configured with: SqlServerTypes.Utilities.LoadNativeAssemblies(Server.MapPath("~/bin")) into the Application_Start.
  • Reference is set to local copy > true.
  • NuGet packages are all updated.
  • I already try to downgrade and upgrade the package.

This is the full error when I try to run for example Add-Migration v002:

System.InvalidOperationException: Spatial types and functions are not available for this provider because the assembly 'Microsoft.SqlServer.Types' version 10 or higher could not be found.

Accepted Answer

After a lot of research I just installed "Microsoft System CLR Types for SQL Server 2012" from:

Worked like a charm!

Make sure you are not missing a binding redirect

  <dependentAssembly>
      <assemblyIdentity name="Microsoft.SqlServer.Types" publicKeyToken="89845dcd8080cc91" culture="neutral" />
      <bindingRedirect oldVersion="10.0.0.0-11.0.0.0" newVersion="14.0.0.0" />
    </dependentAssembly>
