    I am very interested in learning how to use Data Access WinForms in my projects, but I would do like Microsoft Entity Framework, creating the model from an existing base. I found something and I think that this option is now obsolete, could help me with this issue?

    Hello Javier,

    Thank you for your interest in Data Access.

    Indeed the Visual Studio integration of Data Access was deprecated with Q2 2015. This made the process you outline (generating the model from the database) deprecated as well.

    The workaround that can be used in your situation is to download and install on your machine Data Access Q1 2015. With it you can generate a fluent model (through the New Fluent Model wizard) from an existing database. Later on you can upgrade Data Access by installing the Fluent NuGet package on the model project and the Core package on each project that consumes the model.

    Additionally, I would recommend you the WinForms quick-start tutorial of ours. It will help you get familiar with the binding between WinForms and Data Access.

    I hope this helps.
