    I am trying to setup the Executive Dashboard to run on a local machine as a starting point so I can move into developing it to work with our own DB. I've changed the app.config to look at the localhost/webservice (e.g. http://localhost:3931/AWDWDataService.svc/) and changed the web.config to point to a local Adventureworks labs DB.

    I updated the model from the local database which required an upgrade to Entity Frame Work 6, but now it's giving the error:

    The type 'ExecutiveDashboard.Web.AdventureWorksDWAZ2008R2XLabsEntities' cannot be used as type parameter 'TContext' in the generic type or method 'System.ServiceModel.DomainServices.EntityFramework.LinqToEntitiesDomainService<TContext>'. There is no implicit reference conversion from 'ExecutiveDashboard.Web.AdventureWorksDWAZ2008R2XLabsEntities' to 'System.Data.Objects.ObjectContext'

    Has anyone got an idea of how to fix this or managed to get it running locally?

    Hi Dan,

    Could you try deleting the AWDWDomainService.svc from the Service References, clean, rebuild, and then readding it again.

    Hope that helps.
