Operation could not be completed. Invalid Pointer.

I am using Visual Studio 2012.  How can I resolve this?

No.
Each .edmx file has one XML file associated with it.
Generally modification to EDMX file reflected in related XML file.
The issue you reported mostly comes when this XML file has more tags for entity than model.
Another workaround is save all these related files & back it up. Then delete this EDMX & recreate it. Check for the error now.

When you say each .edmx has a xml file, do you right click on .edmx file and open with XML Editor? Or is there an xml file outside that file?

I fixed the error by removing my  *.v11.SUO file.
