I’ve been trialing rider as a replacement for parallels + Windows on my M1 Mac. I love the look and feel of rider, but I can’t seem to figure out how to get my ASP.Net + EF6 app to work properly.
The layout has DAL and the ASP.NET as to separate projects within the same solution.
I’m running the app with a manual build configuration that builds the solution than runs mono’s XSP to serve it.
I noticed that with this method, I have to change my web.config to allow access to the assets folder, but then using DAL(EF6) for anything fails with it either being unable to find the embedded EF metadata or when I provide that from VS, it always returns null in all queries.
For the metadata issue, it looks as though when rider compiles the DAL project, it isn’t running EntityDeploy, so the metadata never gets built. But I can’t seem to get Rider to build it.
But as for all queries returning null when taken from a pre-built DAL, I have no idea.
Is there a different way to go about this? Or am I trying to do something that rider doesn’t support?
