I'm trying to add a entitydatasource to a page but I keep getting this error about the connection string and metadata. I'm using Visual Studio 2013 with EF 5.0. What do I need to change on my connection string to use this control??

  <add name="GeneralAppsEntities1" connectionString="metadata=res://*/App_Code.GeneralApps.csdl|res://*/App_Code.GeneralApps.ssdl|res://*/App_Code.GeneralApps.msl;provider=System.Data.SqlClient;provider connection string=&quot;....&quot;" providerName="System.Data.EntityClient" /></connectionStrings>

Did you change any config settings?
This error can happen because application was unable to load the EDMX file which contains the model for your database.
