The dotnet dbcontext Scaffold ef and scaffold-dbcontext command does not find the package

NGOUNOU VICTOR PEREZ 1 Reputation point

I am trying to generate my models from the database using Entity framework via reverse engineering. but the command does not work.
Here is the exact command I entered

dotnet ef dbcontext scaffold  "Data Source=.; Initial Catalog=DiceDatatable; " Microsoft.EntyFrameworkCore.SqlServer --output-dir Models  

it gives me the following error:


Unable to find provider assembly 'Microsoft.EntyFrameworkCore.SqlServer'. Ensure the name is correct and it's referenced by the project.  

I don't understand what is happening because I installed everything as you can see in the image above

I specify that all the old and new project generates the same error.

the problem occurs after i updated visual studio 2022 from preview to current version.
I am also moving from sql server 2016 to sql server 2022

    There is a typo: (Microsoft.EntyFrameworkCore.SqlServer) in your command.

    It should be,

    dotnet ef dbcontext scaffold "Data Source=.;Initial Catalog=DiceDatatable; " Microsoft.EntityFrameworkCore.SqlServer --output-dir Models  

    And note, you need to have following 2 packages installed,

    Microsoft.EntityFrameworkCore.Design (I see you don't have this installed)
