Turned out to be EF not installed (which I never expected, for one reason, it was working at one point creating POCO elements - not sure how that would have uninstalled itself over time, but whatever - I have spent an inordinate amount of time on this so
I'm glad to be moving forward.)
Thanks for offer for additional help.
