Examples of what the app.config file should look like can be found at the bottom of any of the 4 DCX articles with titles like

"{Model|Code|Database} First to a[n] {new|existing} Database"

including this Database First one; usually found in step #6 (#5 in one case).

Do note that the provider and component names now begin with 'SAP.'. As before, you will also need to adjust the version and build inforamtion to match what you have installed.
