Database Project build fails in Visual Studio 2013

Recently I had experienced a strange issue while building a database project in Visual Studio 2013. Most of the times we require a database project so that we can manipulate the queries and DB objects through Visual Studio. Hence we go for a database project by selecting the available project template as shown below.


Once you have selected the project, you would like to build the project. And suddenly you might encounter issues like below.


No worries. There is a resolution for that too.

Microsoft provide a repairing Data Tool which you can download from the following link Installing the tool should resolve the issue.

In case you still have the issue just go ahead and update SQL Server database using Extensions and Utilities from Tool menu of Visual Studio.


This has eventually resolved my issue after my system got restarted on completion of above installation process.

Hope it helps…..
