How to fix “The system cannot find the path specified” error in mvc 4

The Problem:

So, you’re coding away, and you run your mvc 4 site and you get the following error: The system cannot find the path specified

The Cause:

Most likely you have not already specified the database in the web.config, it’s a simple fix.

The Solution:

Just add this code into the web.config

<add name=”BlogProphetsiteContext” connectionString=”Server=.SQLEXPRESS;Database=BlogProphetsite;Trusted_Connection=true;MultipleActiveResultSets=true” providerName=”System.Data.SqlClient” />

and all will be good. For some reason it does not automatically generate one for you.
