See more: Sqlite EF
I am using Entity framework for my project with sqlite as the database. I need to let the user choose their file at run time, and I would think that I have it all squared away. However when I construct my EF entities object it throws an exception and I can't figure out what I am missing.
string connection = String.Format("metadata=res://*/MyData.csdl|res://*/MyData.ssdl|res://*/MyData.msl;provider=System.Data.SQLite;provider connection string="data source={0}"", file);
_data = new MyDataEntities(connection);
I get the exception: "Keyword not supported: 'data source'."

Solution 1

Ok I found my problem. I coppied my connection string straight from an app.config. The culprit was the " in the two places it was showing up. Changing it to 'data source={0}' solved the issue.
