Entity Framework 5.0 and Code First not creating sql database.

Im really confused because in the past Ive created these and they just work right out of the gate.  But all of a sudden with visual studio 2012 and EF 5.0 I create a simple asp.net mvc 4 Intranet application and I ran into a couple major issues.  One with IIS 7.5 express on my local machine not authorizing me.  But I just switched my project to run on localhost and that took care of that.  But the issue Im asking about here is why its not creating my sql server db based on my model into sql server express.  I have added nothing to my web.config in terms of connection strings.  Also I have not enabled migrations in the Package Manager Console.  When I try to do that it says it cant find a context.  But I thought I had that taken care of in my model folder.  

With earlier versions of EF codefirst Ive not had this issue.  If someone could help me figure this out I would appreciate it.  I havent been able to find anything online to help.

Ive found a solution for this.  I deleted my existing context and let vs create a new one from scratch.  Then added a new controller based on the model and the context and it scaffolded out my views and created the db.  You may close this ticket.

Solution/properties window.  I manually created the folder migrations.  But I have not created a configuration class.  I wasnt sure if that gets automatically created when I run enable-migrations from PM.
