I am dabbling with SQLite, would like to get a bit of experience with (preferably install free, file based) SQL databases, LINQ to SQL, EF.
I have an x64 machine running Win 7 x64 and Visual Studio. I set up a VS project with:
-System.Data.SQLite (with sub packages .Core, .EF6, .LINQ) added from NuGet
-Entity Framework on 6.2
Beside that, I have downloaded and installed the x86 version of SQLite bundle http://system.data.sqlite.org/downloads/188.8.131.52/sqlite-netFx46-setup-bundle-x86-2015-184.108.40.206.exe from the official site (x64 didnt work either). When installing I have selected via checkbox to install design time tools to Visual Studio.
In Visual Studio 2017 “Extension and Updates” menu the SQLite/ SQL Server Compact Toolbox from ErikEj is enabled.
No my problem is, that after I have created an SQLite database and I want to add ADO.NET Entity Data Model (Project -> Add new Item -> Data -> ADO.NET Entity Data Model…) my SQLite database connection is not shown.
