There is no Unicode by order mark. Cannot switch to Unicode.

You were using LINQ and Visual Studio 2008 Beta 2? Switched to Visual Studio 2008 RTM and out of nowhere this error pops up? Lucky you, this one will be pretty easy to fix:

  1. Open up your DBML File.
  2. In the first line, switch the encoding from utf-16 to utf-8.

That’s it once again! I hope you enjoyed another RTM quick fix .. 😉
