Hi Gabriel:

Could you please share us the code of the entities before doing the changes and then the code that is throwing you the error?

Also here are the steps that you should do to use EF migrations:

Add the MySql.Data.Entity.EF6 reference to your project.
Set up the MySQL provider in your app.config or web.config file:

<provider invariantName="MySql.Data.MySqlClient" type="MySql.Data.MySqlClient.MySqlProviderServices, MySql.Data.Entity.EF6"></provider>

After running the enable-migrations command set up the sql and code generators on the configuration constructor:

Add the namespace
using MySql.Data.Entity;

and modify the Configuration constructor to be like this:

public Configuration()
AutomaticMigrationsEnabled = false;

SetSqlGenerator("MySql.Data.MySqlClient", new MySql.Data.Entity.MySqlMigrationSqlGenerator()); CodeGenerator = new MySql.Data.Entity.MySqlMigrationCodeGenerator();

Then you can run the migrations commands correctly.
