I have raised this at: http://social.msdn.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/adodotnetentityframework/thread/c63bf034-f205-4b4e-82e0-40b1c3fca71d where there is extra information. I believe this is important since this works fine in VS2010 SP1 via the Powerpack, and the absence of this in VS2012 prevents me from migrating to VS2012. I think this is a fabulous feature ie Migrating a Database from a Model without data loss.

Really hope it can be resolved quickly.

Many thanks,

Model-First in EF is effectively useless without this. I previously did this with the PowerPack in VS2010. I just spend a bunch of time doing a new model-first project in VS2013 only to find this is now not viable. Simply not acceptable. :(
