connect to .mdf

I'm running Visual Studio 2013 and upgraded for local db to SQLExpress 2014 ver12.

Everytime I try and access a .mdf I get the enclosed error now:

It's like it's tying to find my previous installed express version? How do I switch it in VS2013 to find the correct version of the db?

This issue happens when assembly Microsoft.SqlServer.management.sdk.sfc version 11.0.0.0 not found by visual studio 2012.(Sql server 2012)

To resolve this issue
 just go to http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=35580 and download:

ENU\x64\SharedManagementObjects.msi for X64 OS
                                            or
ENU\x86\SharedManagementObjects.msi for X86 OS

After installation just restart the Visual Studio...
