Missing definition for UseSqlite in DbContextOptionsBuilder class of Microsoft.EntityFrameworkCore.Tool

entity-framework-core sqlite uwp uwp-xaml windows-10-mobile


To enter a picture from a Windows folder location into a table on SQLite and display it on the Windows phone, I'm attempting to create a simple phone app using the UWP framework.

I'm using this article I discovered on the Technet Forum as a source:


I have trouble installing the package Microsoft.EntityFrameworkCore.Tools (latest stable ver. 2.0.1) when following the instructions:

PM>  Install-Package Microsoft.EntityFrameworkCore.Tools
  GET https://api.nuget.org/v3/registration3-gz/microsoft.entityframeworkcore.tools/index.json
  OK https://api.nuget.org/v3/registration3-gz/microsoft.entityframeworkcore.tools/index.json 74ms

The previous version (2.0.0) also had the same problem, but the prior version before that (1.1.4) was successfully installed.

However, I discovered that the "UseSqlite" function is not recognized by the "DbContextOptionsBuilder" class, which is used in the code for the "PictureAppContext" class:

Severity    Code    Description Project File    Line    Suppression State Error CS1061  'DbContextOptionsBuilder' does not contain a definition for 'UseSqlite' and no extension method 'UseSqlite' accepting a first argument of type "DbContextOptionsBuilder' could be found (are you missing a using directive or an assembly reference?)   PicturesApp c:\users\intui\documents\visual studio 2017\Projects\PicturesApp\PicturesApp\PictureAppContext.cs   16  Active

Does anybody know how to fix this problem?
