    I am attempting to add an EntityDataSource for a DbContext that lives in an assembly outside of the one the report resides in.

    I get the following error during the "Choose a context (DbContext or ObjectContext)" step of the wizard:

    "Unable to resolve the context. Try to restart Visual Studio and check you data model".

    Is it possible to add an EntityDataSource for a context in another assembly?

    Hi Alexander,

    Yes, it is possible to use a Db Context from different assembly for a Telerik Reporting EntityDataSource.
    However, there are few issues that have been explained in the Unable to Preview a Report that Uses EntityDataSource forum thread.
    Note that although the Wizard is throwing an exception, the report could still be displayed correctly in a viewer (e.g. WinForms viewer).
