Hi all,


I've downloaded and installed Firebird .Net provider and DDEXProvider, and tried to reverse engineer a Firebird database using Entity Framework 6, but get an exception right after clicking OK in the "Connection Properties" dialog:


System.Data.ProviderIncompatibleException: A null was returned after calling the 'GetService' method on a store provider instance of type 'FirebirdSql.Data.FirebirdClient.FirebirdClientFactory'. The store provider might not be functioning correctly.

   at System.Data.Entity.Design.Common.MetadataUtil.GetProviderServices(DbProviderFactory factory)

   at System.Data.Entity.Design.EntityStoreSchemaGenerator.CreateStoreSchemaConnection(String providerInvariantName, String connectionString, Version targetEntityFrameworkVersion)

   at System.Data.Entity.Design.SsdlGenerator.EntityStoreSchemaGeneratorDatabaseSchemaLoader.CreateStoreSchemaConnection(String providerInvariantName, String connectionString, Version& storeSchemaModelVersion)

   at System.Data.Entity.Design.EntityStoreSchemaGenerator..ctor(String providerInvariantName, String connectionString, String namespaceName)

   at Microsoft.DbContextPackage.Handlers.ReverseEngineerCodeFirstHandler.ReverseEngineerCodeFirst(Project project)


I'm able to add the database to Server Explorer without problems, so I know the database is up and running ok.

Anyone have any clue as to what the problem may be? Any response would be greatly appreciated. J
