When I am adding new controller using template Controller with read/write actions and views entity framework, I am getting below error
"Unable to retrieve metadata for 'MvcTest2.Models.Movie'. The provider did not return a ProviderManifestToken string."
 
My connection string is
         connectionString="Data Source=.\\SQLExpress;Integrated Security=true;User Instance=true;AttachDBFilename=|DataDirectory|Movies.mdf;Initial Catalog=Movies"
         providerName="System.Data.SqlClient"
         
 
also get error in
         connectionString="Data Source=|DataDirectory|Movies.mdf;"
         providerName="System.Data.SqlClient"
         
Which is mention in tutorial.
 
Please give me solution.

Hi,
 
it was problam with connection string and I have fixed by,
open VS and then switch to View=>Server Explorer and open the Server panel to create a connection, if this successfully, please copy the conn str of the remote one directly into your app or web.config.
