Playing arround on an existent Class Library with a Entity Data Model, I added a new item to my project, of type ADO.NET EntityObject Generator.

I then removed the file from my project but the following error message persists on the error list:

Error	1	Running transformation: Please overwrite the replacement token '$edmxInputFile$' with the actual name of the .edmx file you would like to generate from.	C:\_Package-NET\DAL\	1	1

Thank you Joao S Cardoso.

"Close and open the project again and the error message is gone"

This fixed my issue! Be nice if it didn't happen in the first place, but this works.

I have the same problem, except that in step (d) I removed the entire model (class library) project. The error (for a project that now no longer exists is still there).

Hi Guys!

Glad to see that you have recognized the error, sad to see that you're not going to fix it (as yet). My problem as a result of this is: my project won;t compile, because the error persists.
How do I proceed now? Do you have a workaround to get rid of the error?

Hello Joao, at this time, this bug does not meet the bar for fixing. We will attempt to make the experience around code generation better in the next release.

Thank you for filing this bug. We agree that it is an annoyance and will fix it as soon as we can - at this time, it does not meet the bar for Visual Studio 2010.

To preproduce the error is simple. I'm sending you a screenshot of the end result also.

a) create a new class library project
b) add a new Entity Data Model
c) Add a new entityobject generator and notice the error
d) Remove the entityobject generator (.tt) file from project (delete)
e) Notice the error message is still there
f) the error message does not disapears even after a cleanup and rebuild
g) Close and open the project again and the error message is gone

Notice my screenshot. It referes to a file that its not on the project.
