[Feature] Support EDMX generated by Entity Framework Power Tools

description

Currently, EDMX generated by Entity Framework Power Tools crashes the tool as described below.

Support for EF Power Tools is needed.
This also provides indirect support of Code-First since you can generate an EDMX with Entity Framework Power Tools, check how.

Issue
On the source page when I attempt to click the checkboxes for All Types, Complex Types or Entity Types, the window just closes. This happens regardless of whether an EDMX is selected or not.

Additional Details
OS: Visual Studio 2012
ASP.NET MVC project with EF CodeFirst: EDMX generated through EF Power Tools.

Hi Rashid.
Sorry for the too late response, been busy with other projects.
You have a very interesting scenario.
Please, tell me which version of EF Power Tools you are using and if possible the basic data structure of your entities so I could reproduce the bug in my machine. The very first thing that ocmes to my mind is that EF Power Tools generate the EDMX in a very different format and that causes the tool to crash so bad.
Also please check if something is written to the log of EntitiesToDTOs.
Thanks a lot!

Hi Rashid.
Could you share a simplified working model of your Code-First Project which I can use to reproduce the issue?
Thanks!
