    Okay, so support for building a data model from an existing database has been dropped without explanation. But he shows how you can work around that by adding a new ADO.NET Data Entity Model. Unfortunately, that feature is no longer supported by Visual Studio. Why not just tell us to please not build database models from an existing database?
