Getting started with Dynamic Data!

Hi ,

Sorry I checked out the entire discussion but did not find any post for newbies! I installed .net framework 3.5 SP1  but when I tried to create a new Dynamic Data project, I could not find such an option in "File -> New Web Site"  or "File -> New Project". Do I have to install something else?

Please help.

I'm asuming that when you say .net framework 3.5 SP1 you mean Visual Studio 2008 Service Pack 1 Beta. If you cannot see the Dynamic Data templates when creating an new project/website then you have an installation problem please follow the instruction here  Dynamic Data Runtime which says:

Install Visual Studio 2008 Service Pack 1 Beta (If your using Visual Studio 2008)


Download the latest .zip package to your local machine & unzip the .zip file into a folder on your computer.
From either a VS 2008 command prompt, change directory to the folder you unzipped it to and run Install.cmd.

Note: Running it from the VS 2008 command prompt is very important.

These options only appear if you chose Web Development settings.If you chose C# or general development for example, you'll have File -> New -> Project or File -> New -> Web Site.
You can change your settings by going to Tools -> Import and Export Settings.

Let me know if this was what you meant.

Missing Dynamic Data Website and Dynamic Data Web Application templates
 I have installed VS 2008 SP1 and .Net 3.5 SP1 but I still don't see the Dynamic Data Website and Dynamic Data Web Application templates when I try to create a new website or web application. Hi, when you choose to add a new project make sure that the targeted framework is indeed 3.5 and that you select the C# or VB.NET root node or in the Web node. Normally they should be in there. When I installed it on one of my laptops I didn't see them either. I didn't check the 3.5 framework and apparently it stood on 3.0 causing me to go like  until I found it. ...

Dynamic Data SP1 chokes on Northwind and AdventureWorks using ADO.Net Entity Data Model
