Ok. In this case there are two options to manually specify a connection string.
1. Open the Advanced Menu in the ConnectionStrings dialog. Here you can find an Entry called datasource. You can paste the connection details there
See the attached screenshot for details.
2. Another option is to specify the connection string in the app.config of your new application.
Having done this, create a new empty domain model. Open the .rlinq file with an xml editor and add an AppConfigConnectionPropertyName entry under the 'ModelSettings' node. See the following snippet.
Hence the name, 'Connection' in this case, must match the name of the connection in your app.config.
Save the .rlinq file and open it again with the visual designer. Now when you right-click -> Update From Database you should get the update from database wizard without the need to specify a connection string.
Can you now read your database schema information?
Please accept my apologies for the inconvenience these steps might cause to you.
