Introduction Dialog

This article is relevant to entity models that utilize the deprecated Visual Studio integration of Telerik Data Access. The current documentation of the Data Access framework is available here.

The first page of the wizard is the Introduction Dialog. It describes all important notes, you should be aware of:

  • Before starting the conversion, a backup of the project's original state will be created. When you use the Telerik Data Access Entity Framework Conversion Wizard for upgrading EF data model to Telerik Data Access Domain Model, a backup of the project's original state is created. The backup is placed folder named ProjectName_Backup. That folder is a subfolder of the project folder.
  • If the project is under source control, it will be checked out automatically during the conversion. Be sure that the source control plug-in is active and no files are exclusively checked out by another user.

Read the notes and press Next to proceed. The second page is the place where you need to specify the settings for the conversion.
