    In going through the Quickstart here
     I get the following error when compiling/running the application. I've started from scratch about 4 times using different machines, figuring I was mistyping something. Anything I should be looking for to solve this? I also tried the ASP.NET version of this Quickstart for kicks but I got my share of errors there too.

    Error 2 The type or namespace name 'SofiaCarRentalDbContext' could not be found (are you missing a using directive or an assembly reference?) c:\users\mariond\documents\visual studio 2010\Projects\TelerikOrm\WindowsFormsOpenAccessIntegration\WindowsFormsOpenAccessIntegration\Form1.cs 14 17 WindowsFormsOpenAccessIntegration

    Below is my code for form1.cs and and I've attached a screenshot of my project references.

    using System;
    using System.Collections.Generic;
    using System.ComponentModel;
    using System.Data;
    using System.Drawing;
    using System.Linq;
    using System.Text;
    using System.Windows.Forms;

    namespace WindowsFormsOpenAccessIntegration
        public partial class Form1 : Form
            private SofiaCarRentalDbContext dbContext = new SofiaCarRentalDbContext();
            private BindingSource dataSource = new BindingSource();
            public Form1()

            private void Form1_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)


            private void btnLoadCars_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
                this.dataSource.DataSource = dbContext.Cars.Where(c => c.Make == tbMake.Text).ToList();
                this.dgvCars.DataSource = this.dataSource;

    Hello Marion,

    The data context from the getting started tutorial is named SofiaCarRentalDbContext. It seems that you provided different Model name on step #6 from the “Creating Domain Model” article. This Model name value is used as a name of the generated data context class. 
    To query data you should use an instance of the class generated under the SofiaCarRentalDomainModel.cs file.
    Hope that helps. It that is not the case, please provide us with your project where the problem is reproduced. For that purpose you should open a support thread as it is not possible to attach projects in forum posts.
