The conceptual model type could not be found. entity-framework entity-model


I have two Entity Data models within a MVC3 project A and B.

I have recently added the new entity data model B to deal with some new functionality, the issue is that now the existing code has stopped working and I am getting the following error when trying to access code within entity model A.

The error message is:

Could not find the conceptual model type 'project.models.Bclass'

I do not understand why it is this new functionality has affected the current code seeing as entity model A has not change in any way. And functionality B is in a separate class and does not interfere with model A.

When the new code is removed from the project and entity model B is excluded then the code works as it should.

Here is some of the stacktrace from the error:

Exception : Could not find the conceptual model type for 'Project1.Models.CrossSession'.

Accepted Answer

Solution found. It appears in some cases (randomly) there is a mix up in the code generated by the entity framework. This is apparently a known bug and a fix should be coming in future releases. In the mean time the way around this is to move the efm to a separate class within the solution.

I had the same problem with 2 different .edmx files in the same project. For the first .edmx model I had used "Add Code Generation Item", for the second model I hadn't. The project was building correctly but throwing that exception on runtime.

I solved generating the .tt classes for the second .edmx model as well.
