CS0012: The type 'System.Data.Objects.DataClasses.EntityObject' is defined in an assembly that is not referenced

When you work on development with Entity Framework you can see below error.

CS0012: The type 'System.Data.Objects.DataClasses.EntityObject' is defined in an assembly that is not referenced.

The first step is to add a References to System.Data.Entity under References in Visual Studio. Right click References folder and choose Add Reference, from the list you have to choose following assembly:

System.Data.Entity, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=b77a5c561934e089

However sometimes it is not enough and you have to modify your Web.config file.

The solution is to add below line to Web.config file

<add assembly="System.Data.Entity, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=b77a5c561934e089" />

Here is example of complete <system.web> section from Web.config, it is taken from ASP.NET MVC 3 application so you will need to modify it according to your needs:

<compilation debug="true" targetFramework="4.0">
<add assembly="System.Web.Abstractions, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=31BF3856AD364E35" />
 <add assembly="System.Web.Helpers, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=31BF3856AD364E35" /> 
<add assembly="System.Web.Routing, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=31BF3856AD364E35" /> 
<add assembly="System.Web.Mvc, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=31BF3856AD364E35" /> 
<add assembly="System.Web.WebPages, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=31BF3856AD364E35" /> 
<add assembly="System.Data.Entity, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=b77a5c561934e089" /> </assemblies> </compilation> 
<authentication mode="Forms"> 
<forms loginUrl="~/Account/LogOn" timeout="2880" /> 
<add namespace="System.Web.Helpers" /> 
<add namespace="System.Web.Mvc" /> 
<add namespace="System.Web.Mvc.Ajax" /> 
<add namespace="System.Web.Mvc.Html" />
