Hello King Wilder,
Do you see the Tables/Views/Stored procedures nodes in the treeview behind the progress indicator? If so, you have hit a known problem with the busy indicator control, which prevents it from hiding when the database schema is read. This problem is observed when another Visual Studio extension has loaded the WPFToolkit library, where the busy indicator is defined. If this is the case, you should be able to create the model successfully by disabling all other Visual Studio addins and extensions from the Tools -> Add-in Manager
and Tools -> Extension Manager
dialogs, restarting Visual Studio and running the OpenAccess wizard again.
This problem will be fixed for the upcoming 2012 Q2 release.
If you do not see the three nodes in the background and the busy indicator continues to show the "Reading database schema" message, this might be a problem with our schema reader. In this case we would need more details about your setup - which database backend you are using, is it installed locally or accessed remotely and how many tables/stored procedures are present there? If possible, please send us your database schema, so we could test the same setup on our side.
