Setting up Database First EF Project Using Scaffold-DBContext

asp.net-core entity-framework-core

Question

I have a database, and am trying to set-up a DB first EF project. My project is a Web API project using .Net Core. The command like I'm issuing is this:

Scaffold-DbContext "Server=Server\Instance;Database=MyDatabase;Trusted_Connection=True;" Microsoft.EntityFrameworkCore.SqlServer -OutputDir Models

However, I get the following error:

Could not load file or assembly 'Microsoft.EntityFrameworkCore.Design' or one of its dependencies. The system cannot find the file specified.

System.IO.FileNotFoundException: Could not load file or assembly 'Microsoft.EntityFrameworkCore.Design' or one of its dependencies. The system cannot find the file specified.

   at Microsoft.DotNet.Cli.CommandLine.CommandLineApplication.Execute(String[] args)

The dependencies for this project are here:

  "dependencies": {
    "Microsoft.Extensions.Options.ConfigurationExtensions": "1.1.0",
    "Microsoft.NETCore.App": "1.1.0",
    "NETStandard.Library": "1.6.1",

    "System.Collections.NonGeneric": "4.3.0",
    "Microsoft.AspNetCore.Hosting.Abstractions": "1.1.0"
  },

As you can see, it is referenced.

Please can someone point me in the right direction on this one?

EDIT:

Before it the current (complete) project.json:

    ]
  },

  "scripts": {
    "postpublish": [ "dotnet publish-iis --publish-folder %publish:OutputPath% --framework %publish:FullTargetFramework%" ]
  }
}

With this configuration, I get a compilation error:

Can not find runtime target for framework '.NETCoreApp,Version=v1.0' compatible with one of the target runtimes: 'win10-x86, win81-x86, win8-x86, win7-x86'.

Please do the following steps.

  1. Update your .Net Core SDK to most latest current version. (for new its 1.0.0-preview2-1-003177). download link

enter image description here

  1. Update .Net Core SDK version in gobal.json file
  2. Update netcoreapp version in frameworks section of project.json

    
    "frameworks": {
     "netcoreapp1.1": {
       "imports": [
         "dotnet5.6",
         "portable-net45+win8"
        ]
     }
    },
  3. Add these packages to `project.json

    
    "Microsoft.EntityFrameworkCore.SqlServer.Design": {
      "version": "1.1.0",
      "type": "build"
    },
    "Microsoft.EntityFrameworkCore.Tools": {
      "version": "1.1.0-preview4-final",
      "type": "build"
    }
  4. Update your tools section in project.json and add Microsoft.EntityFrameworkCore.Tools latest version

    
    "tools": {
       "Microsoft.EntityFrameworkCore.Tools": "1.1.0-preview4-final"
    },
    

Command:

`Scaffold-DbContext "Server=Server\\Instance;Database=MyDatabase;Trusted_Connection=True;" Microsoft.EntityFrameworkCore.SqlServer -OutputDir Models`
